Philosophers, poets, and scientists alike have praised the virtues of music. For seniors, music can reawaken the mind and uplift the heart. That is why Spring Hills proudly offers music therapy for seniors within our Signature Programs, as part of our holistic approach to senior care.
Music therapy for elderly patients, especially those receiving memory care, have experienced numerous benefits, including:
Studies confirm the positive relationship between music and the elderly brain, and our caregivers have witnessed how much our residents and clients enjoy activities when music is involved. In our memory care facilities, we use all the tools we can to really reach out to our clients and to empower them to live life to the fullest.
Spring Hills makes sure that our seniors’ days are filled with joy and music, because to us, health care is not just physical; it is mental and emotional as well. We’ve organized drum circles and sing-alongs and hosted special musical events, bringing in music groups such as local orchestral arrangements and choirs. Some of our classes even have mood music playing in the background, and many times, we simply provide our seniors headphones so they can sit back and relax to their favorite tunes.
Not only do our assisted living residents enjoy music therapy–our home care recipients do, too! Contact us to find out more about the music therapy programs we offer at your nearest assisted living facility.
