WHAT THE OTTAWA BUSINESS JOURNAL IS SAYING ABOUT 'FACE THE MUSIC' - Corporate Experiential Learning using MUSIC
Early Alzheimer singer's enthusiasm growing
'Minds In Song' singing choir for home based early Alzheimer participants and their caregivers. The program is enjoying record growth from 8 participants last September to close to 30 members to date. Participants report heightened feelings of well-being that continue throughout the day, urges to spontaneously sing and more vitality to tackle scheduled tasks.
'Musical Wellness' is the term we use to describe the effect we have on our clients while engaging them in 'live' therapeutic music. We deliver this several times a day, all year round, to individuals with dementia, developmental disabilities and brain injuries.
We specifically cater to those individuals who have become isolated through their illness and can no longer join in with the regular activities. As well as serving them with their own personal musical repertoire, we give personal one-on-one attention and support.
We also work with those in palliative care and are routinely called in to give comfort to individuals and family members during precious end-of-life moments.
