Singing for Seniors
Gerontology Singing Programmes Reinvented
Over 200 Facilities across New Zealand and Australia have been influenced by Dr Julie since launching them in 2011.
Singing for Seniors is the world's first web based eLearning platform specialising in Singing Resources for the Aged Care Sector
Everything you need
Designed by Julie Jackson-Gough PhD, a musical expert in gerontology - the programme contributes to the ongoing physical, mental & emotional health of residents of retirement complexes, for independent to fully dependent people. Up-skill your staff, educate facility
management, provide training & unlimited on-going support to ensure consistent services across your facilities to show you care, and reduce complaints in participants by up to 75%.
Simple Yet Effective
Singing for Seniors has the power of a skilled professional onsite, anytime you choose - but without the costs.
There’s a consistent high standard across all villages, independent of level of staff. Residents can run sessions, which frees up the occupational therapist, there are fewer entertainers to organise, the music is in lower keys, and slower speed which is appropriate for aging voices,
- And... it’s not just the old songs!!!
Loved by Residents & Occupational Therapists
Reduce Resident's Complaints
Why? Singing for Seniors is a joy to use. Residents report health benefits, particularly respiratory problems and memory concentration and enhancement. Voice and breathing exercises are a particular help for ex-smokers and asthmatics. You don’t need to be able to read music, singing leaves residents feeling euphoric and residents can choose their own songs.
“l feel like a child again, with the freedom to make faces and loud strange sounds”
“it gives us a sense of achievement that leaves us on a high”
