3rd March: The commercial benefits of eLearning

We operate an online training platform because over 40% of every dollar spent on training goes towards travel costs. Specialised resources are difficult to find outside of the main centres of New Zealand and Australia. Find out why this new way of learning can help you decrease your operations budget with examples from the NZ aged care sector and abroad.

10th March: How to enhance health via singing in the hospital and rest home 

Within the retirement village singing enhances residents health for common issues such as dimentia, asthma, stoke, and Parkinson's. Seniors can find it hard to sing along to the music they used to listen to regularly and entertainers sing in their own tone and pitch, which means they sing less, missing out on the health benefits of singing. Find out the basics about how to enhance health via singing & the pitfalls.

"Singing for Seniors has shown us how beneficial music can be especially at our age!"

17th March: The key steps to implementing a singing therapy programme

  • Singing improves mood and sense of community

  • Improves brain function and memory

  • Increases lung capacity and oxygenation in the bloodstream

  • Boosts immunity by promoting a health lymphatic system

  • Clears respiratory systems and sinuses and produces endorphins.

 

Learn about the way music is treated in the aged care sector. We'll highlight simple changes you can make to switch from entertaining residents to empowering them and enhancing their health. The key to any successful implementation is your team so we provide an overview of the challenges they face.
