Singing for Seniors
Conducted by professional singers these singing activities are fun and energising for residents, family members, carers, and staff alike. Sessions can be tailored to the particular needs of the group such as those living with dementia, Parkinson’s, or other special requirements. We have also developed a training programme so that we can train your staff to deliver Singing for Seniors sessions. Click here for more information.
Singing for Seniors provides uplifting, interactive sing-alongs, incorporating a variety of songs, warm ups and fun vocal games. Singing exercises and physical movement add to the fun – we even encourage dancing should the mood take you!
Singing is a powerful way to transform the life of a resident living with dementia. Studies have shown that not only does it help with memory recall, but it also improves their general wellbeing. It’s an enjoyable social activity, which lifts the sense of isolation felt by many. It also helps restore personal identity. People with dementia can tap into long-forgotten memories through singing and often readily recall songs from their past.
The benefits of these sessions are clear to see:
- People are more energised
- Their mood is improved
- Communication skills are enhanced.
- Breathing exercises improve stamina
- Gentle physical warm ups keep that circulation going
Sessions can be run on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis as part of your activities calendar. We can also plan especially themed events such as songs from the shows, wartime songs, etc.
We’ll be happy to tailor something to suit your needs. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
