A choir formed for people with dementia and their families has given John - as well as Julie - a new lease of life.
The Forget Me Not choir in Rhiwbina, Cardiff started life as a project with the Welsh National Opera (WNO). Half the members have Alzheimer's, and half the members are their parents, friends and carers.
Julie's husband John has always loved music. Ten years ago, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. His memory and ability to communicate has been deteriorating ever since.
James says: "As far as I can remember, since I was a young boy I usually go to choir anyhow, because I like singing." His wife and carer Mary Rose says coming here has made a big difference to their relationship.
Choir leader Kate sings with WNO but gives her free time to the choir, saying it has an incredibly positive effect on members, both carers and those with dementia.
In May the choir will be performing a range of songs in the public performance area of the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff.
