Singing the Hits

....as you remember them best

A key program in Music Elements is entertainment for the residents in facilities such as Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Units, Hospitals and Senior Centers.
 
 The performance consists of a fun filled hour of song that the clientele

People are talking...

What more can we say but " awesome!" Anita is wonderful! The residents and staff of 4C and 4D at the ENRM Veterans Administration cannot say enough food things about Anita. As the population here at the hospital continues to age, and for many decline, planning therapeutic and enjoyable programs gets harder and harder. Music is a huge part of our programming here at the hospital. it helps to bridge the gap between all of our residents, whatever their physical or cognitive level.

Residents that will not come out of their rooms for other programs, get dressed and come to Anita's program. many of the residents have recently stared to make specific song request and in so doing reminisce about what the song means to them. I have seen residents that normally stay in the background during programs get up and dance. Residents that normally only observe in my sing-a-long program, sing with Anita during her show. 

Anita makes sure that she makes each and every resident that attends her program feel important and involved. Anita remains focused on the residents the entire time, mingling with them, dancing with them, listening to their stories and requests, and at times sharing the microphone with those residents that like to sing. I would strongly recommend Anita to any Recreational Therapist or Activity Director that is looking to enhance the music component of their program,

Sincerely,

Courtney Doelger, CTRS  

 remember most! The songs and sing-a-longs range from Standards and Broadway to Oldies and Country. We have considerable experience with all residents and their care ranging from Alzheimer's disease, dementia, ambulatory and long term. We make each show special to everyone by dancing, swaying with them in their wheelchairs, holding their hand or just making very tender eye contact to help stimulate them in a very positive way. The reward is that wonderful smile or sparkle in their eye that lets us know they understand and really relate to the music. 
 
 We can also make the holidays special with theme parties that correspond to a particular time of year such as Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, July 4th, Halloween and Christmas. We even have New England's best Santa!
