Relaxing music therapy

The picture below is of Elfair, our wonderful live musician in residence who plays the harp to residents once a month.

Elfair, of Creative Inspiration Shropshire,  has proved a huge hit with residents throughout the Uplands.

As Fiona, one of activities gurus, explains: “We have live music here every week but some people can’t always gain access to where it is being held.

“Through the Musical Care Homes programme, Elfair brings the music to the residents in their rooms, though she also plays in lounges during lunch.

“She is fabulous. The feedback we have had from family members who have seen how their loved ones respond has been really positive. It has a really calming effect but also gets residents smiling and tapping away!”
