Music and music therapy programs are highly beneficial to people with a wide range of health issues, including autism, dementia, Parkinson’s, depression, and respiratory disease. Music therapy has also been shown to boost our immune system. Research done by Harvard Medical, McGill University, UCLA Irvine, and Oxford University Hospitals, to name a few, some using imaging and biometric technology, supports these claims.
SingFit is our new music therapy program, developed specifically to target improvement in mood, behavior, cognitive function, and engagement. There is also evidence to support that this program is capable of reducing the use of medications prescribed to treat conditions such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
SingFit is built to deliver those benefits to our Extended Care residents.It is a therapy session of singing with verbal prompts, so all can participate. The average session is 45 minutes and includes 8 to 10 songs, trivia questions, background about the author, singer, song or genre. It is a singalong with a purpose! Currently the sessions are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10:30. Our trained facilitators are Mary Davidson, Lacy Durham and Jude Redfield. Feel free to drop in and visit, and add another voice to this new innovation in mood elevation.
