SingAbout is based on a recognised form of therapy specifically developed for older people, especially those with dementia. It stimulates, improves and maintains the brain's neurological pathways, helps with breathing and promotes a sense of wellbeing.
The sessions are not passive, but involve group participation. Sometimes songs are sung in rounds, and often require gentle hand actions or chair-based movement. Our music therapist encourages people to share memories they may have of particular songs and will take requests. Sessions have a wider benefit to both carers and residents by providing a fun group activity and encouraging social interaction.
The Care Quality Commission recommends increased activity for older people and SingAbout hits the right note!
SingAbout sessions for residential homes are available on the Isle of Wight.
Soundbeam enables clients with profound physical or learning disabilities to become expressive and communicative using music and sound. Through stimulating movement, Soundbeam can benefit clients' physical functioning, contributing to their empowerment and opening the realms of creativity to people with disabilities.
Soundbeam is a little box which emits an ultrasonic beam. When this beam is broken a signal is produced which is channeled through a midi-system to give an almost limitless variety of sounds ranging from the familiar piano, electric guitar and percussion instruments, to the noise of the motor racing circuit, to more ambient, atmospheric sounds which enable the imagination to wander. The length of the beam can be adjusted so, for example, dancers can trigger sounds from their movements, or severely disabled individuals can activate the beam by the movement of a single finger or the blinking of an eyelid.
