We can all agree that music is an essential part of life and such a meaningful way to express our emotions. It’s there when you want to dance or cry. Therefore, here at Athena Healthcare Group, we believe that music is an essential part of our residents’ lives. When our residents listen to songs from different eras it has the power to evoke memories and bring people together. In this blog post, we’ll explore the different ways we use music to enhance the lives of our residents.
One of the most popular ways we incorporate music into our activities is through sing-alongs. We provide songbooks with lyrics and encourage residents to join in. Singing is a great way to improve mood, reduce stress, and promote social interaction between our lovely residents!
In our care homes, we invite musicians, bands, and performers to come and entertain our residents. Live music is a great way to lift spirits, promote a sense of community, and provide a fun and engaging experience.
Reminiscing can evoke memories and emotions, and we use that to our advantage. We create personalised playlists for our residents that include songs from their past. Listening to soundtracks from their youth can bring back memories and provide comfort and familiarity. Which, overall, will make our residents happier and feel more at home within our care homes.
In conclusion, music is a vital part of our residents’ lives. Whether that’s through sing-alongs, live performances, or personalised playlists, we believe that music is an essential tool when it comes to caring for our residents.
