Seniors music program – I came across a great website that links seniors to live music. www.musicforseniors.org is a program that connects upbeat musicians with senior centers, day programs, retirement communities and at-home senior adults.
Seniors Music Program with Favorite Songs
“Music is such a universal spirit lifter,” one of the performers said. “I’ve seen folks who can’t string together a coherent sentence and yet they can sing all the words to their favorite songs. It’s remarkable.”
Music is also known to help patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia, increases movement and promotes socialization.
This particular program is located in and near Nashville, Tennessee, but the idea of the program can work anywhere. www.musicforseniors.org also pays its performers $50 per show, which are required once per month.
The performers also partake in concerts throughout the year where the audience comes to them.
If you’re interested in participating, there is a form on the website under the ‘Performers’ link, but if you’re not in the Tennessee area, contact your local retirement community or senior center. It’s possible they have a similar program, and if they don’t, it’s possible they will welcome you with open arms.
