jo-meyers-and-margarc3e11aResidents at Rogers House Care Home in Wigmore enjoyed an energetic and animated morning workshop of singing and dancing.

 

 

The residents enjoyed singing along to classic favourites, as well as using a variety of instruments.

 

Roxy Shah, activity coordinator at Rogers House commented: “Our residents absolutely love the music sessions, they are always different, loud and simple to follow, so all residents can get involved, there is always a lively and fun atmosphere in the home when the session is going on!”

 

Music is proven to have many benefits for older people, particularly those living in care homes, as it is a sociable activity, which brings residents together and promotes a family atmosphere.

 

The workshops also reduce stress, improve blood flow to vital organs, increase the sense of companionship and access memory strengths and draw on them.
