Care Home Choirs
We run choirs in five care homes in Cardiff and the Vale, connecting residents, volunteer singing buddies and care home staff through our rehearsals. These homes are passionate about providing high quality activities for their residents and recognise the excellence and difference of the Forget-me-not model: a weekly session that encourages interaction, engagement and physical activity as well as vocal involvement.
What the activities coordinators say;
The Forget-me-not Chorus has brought undiluted joy to our residents, the number of participants grows week by week as the word spreads that our sessions are fun.
The Manor House, St Hilary
We have noticed improvements in residents moods. One man in particular was withdrawn and solitary, diagnosed as clinically depressed...
he is now gaining weight, eating well, more animated and socialising. His GP will be recommending the weekly singing sessions to more of our residents
Nazareth House, Cardiff
All our music staff are highly skilled, busy professional musicians who share a passion for using music to energise, empower, entertain and make a real difference.
