ONE-TO-ONE MUSIC THERAPY AT ELMWOOD

09 February 2017

Led by the Activities Team, residents at Elmwood have recently been enjoying one-to-one music therapy using an electronic tablet device and Bluetooth speaker in their bedrooms. One of the residents, Audrey, loved listening to Vera Lynn’s songs including ’We’ll Meet Again’, ’The White Cliffs of Dover’ and ’As Time Goes By’. Another resident, Jenny, commented, ’It has provided an opportunity to listen to my favourite Christian hymns’ while Eileen noted how good the activity was as she could listen to her old Irish songs.

’Residents have been singing and moving in their beds’, commented George Kalsi, Activities Co-ordinator. ’They love these music sessions and it’s great to see them so cheerful.’
