Member Profile: Lingo Flamingo
We are Lingo Flamingo, the world’s first not-for-profit to use language learning as a therapeutic platform for those living with dementia. At first it might sound a strange thing to do, but our work is powered by some fascinating research showing that learning a language can delay dementia and help aid stroke recovery. By offering slow-paced, sensory classes we build confidence, stimulate the mind, and create connections between learners. Incredibly, through our language experience, learner’s decision making and multi-tasking skills are improved, and their ability to concentrate and communicate is heightened.
