Police officer sings 'All You Need is Love' to care home residents with dementia in touching video

This is the touching moment a Derbyshire police officer was caught on camera singing 'All You Need is Love' to care home residents in Sandiacre.

PC John Aldred was part of the local policing Safer Neighbourhood team that were visiting Longmoor Lodge Care Home to provide re-assurance and advice.

John took along his guitar and spent some time playing and singing to the residents there.

They can be seen singing along together. The Alzheimer's Society say that singing can improve brain activity, wellbeing and mood.

We don’t often get to do ‘nice’ things in our job and I think this is a lovely example of a team which really care strongly about the vulnerable, hard to reach members of the community they serve.”

– Sergeant Sarah Carlile, Derbyshire Constabulary
