Musical entertainment at St Breock

Posted by cornwallcare on November 10, 2018

On 5 November, our residents and staff at St Breock were privileged to be joined by a new entertainer to their home, Phil Brown.

Phil entertained us with old familiar tunes as he sang and played guitar. It was a really lively atmosphere and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. In fact some of us enjoyed the tunes so much we had to get up and dance. We can’t wait until Phil visits us again.

Research shows that music activities (both music listening and music making) can influence older adults’ perceptions about the quality of their lives. The British Association for Music Therapy says: "Music is something that we can all relate to regardless of age, and is often central to a person’s sense of identity. It provides us with ways to connect and share feeling, memories and moments with others, and offers stimulation and encourages expression. Music therapy can also enhance exploratory and creative abilities, as well as foster self-esteem and the sense of feeling valued and heard.

We at Cornwall Care believe in ensuring that music plays a regular part in the lives of our residents. When they are happy, we are happy.
