Music For Wellbeing in Care Homes

Music for all abilities

Studies have proven music and singing to have a positive cognitive benefit on older people and especially anyone living with a dementia (even late stage). Singing well-loved favourite tunes have been found to unlock previous memories and aid social functioning.

  • improves brain function - singing learnt songs can unlock dormant memories in those with dementia
  • create a sense of community - singing as part of a group can be a fun, bonding activity, helping to build empathy with others
  • lower stress levels - studies show that singing can decrease blood pressure, while focusing on lyrics relaxes and calms the mind

Our range of popular CD and large print songbooks are just the thing to get everyone singing along, like our Happy Days are Here Again or for something modern, Party Megamix 50s/60s. Dance fans love our Grease/Saturday Night Fever Karaoke DVD - why not add some Cheerleader Pom Poms to shake along too?

Some people and especially anyone with dementia can enjoy playing an instrument - tapping on a Bongo Drum or shaking some Maracas can help keep them engaged too.
