Monday Melodies is our singalong programme for care homes.
Our team of volunteers visits residential homes for the elderly and engage the residents in fun, interactive singing sessions. Our audience becomes part of the choir, and we all sing together, incorporating other cognitive stimulation such as trivia questions, quizzes and giving our audience members percussion instruments to join in. We welcome new members of any singing level. No previous experience or training required!
Our Sparky Parkies programme is a Friday afternoon club for people living with Parkinsons.
We team up with Parkinsons Jersey to run a targeted music and speech therapy session for people with Parkinsons and their carers, delivering a fun and stimulating programme of singing, speech therapy and social bonding for our members. We work with a qualified Speech and Language Therapist, a pianist and a music lead to deliver targeted therapy to combat the negative effects of Parkinsons on voice and communication as well as a good social get together and a great deal of laughter and fun.
I just wanted to let you know how much everyone enjoyed Thursday; they were still talking about the entertainment as they left for home! Des even said it was the best St Patrick’s day he has ever had!
