Even though Care Home Open Day has been rescheduled due to the pandemic, we wanted to show you how we’ve been incorporating music into the lives of our residents and enriching them further.

Music and the joy it brings is such an integral part in all of our care homes, and we have so many stories of the positive impacts it has had for our residents and staff alike.

From regular musical entertainers to themed events, choirs to music therapy, and singalongs to hallway karaoke, a home without music is a home without heart.

While we can’t share all of our stories from all of our homes, in honour of what would have been Care Home Open Day today, here’s a sample of how music has brought joy to our lives, especially over the last few months –

Brentwood have their own monthly radio request show

Woodlands have been holding music therapy sessions

Withens' resident taught us to play the ukulele

Queens Court have created their own choir
