Our Musical Activities
The music related activities include listening to music played by volunteers and learning songs on the various instruments. We strive to use our music in interactive ways such as musical history tours in which we play popular songs from different decades and include fun facts about the time period.
Our Art Activities
Art related activities include crafts, drawing, painting, and other therapeutic projects. Specific examples are, but are not limited to, paper flowers, card making, origami, zentangles, etc.
Studies have shown that music can improve mood, help motor, cognitive, and social skills, reduce stress, and improve memory. Art has also been proven to help with cognitive function, communication, brain function, and social interactions in dementia patients.
