We have an exciting selection of musical instruments, and sound makers, for adults, the elderly, people living with all stages of dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or following a stroke or brain injury, to actively engage in making rhythm and music. From traditional to modern design, enjoy the experience of the pleasing sensation of soft soothing vibrations, using a range of easy to follow repetitive movements, with strong visual and sound rewards.
TIPS: Concentrate on what the individual can do, not what they can’t, some may require assistance whilst others are independent. Allow an individual to remain passive and only observe and listen to the music if they don’t wish to participate in an active way.
BENEFITS: To open a window of communication and connection, promote self-expression and creativity, participation in performing and singing, social skills, improve reactions, and develop hand strength.
