3. Pre-Recorded Intergenerational Music Groups: featuring footage of real children playing along to facilitate engagement and joy for AL/long-term care residents!
Many of you know and love our incredibly popular intergenerational music programs, offered at 5 assisted living facilities across Anne Arundel County. We're thrilled to announce the newest way we're connecting with our grandfriends and keeping the music alive during this time of social distancing: VIRTUAL INTERGENERATIONAL MUSIC GROUPS! We now offer full-length pre-recorded music sessions for facilities featuring footage of adorable children to promote resident engagement! Each group is led by Zoe Kerstin Levine, MT-BC, with assistance from AMT's fabulous intern Ritchie Young. Videos feature interactive elements, like reminiscence questions and conversations to get residents talking, as well as live and recorded music experiences to facilitate movement and singing. We will release a new video every month (or more at your request), and your facility will receive each video via Unlisted Youtube link that can be watched by residents in their rooms or in common areas. Sneak a peek of some cuteness overload below, taken straight from our April spring-themed session. 👇☔️Are you an AL/long-term care facility interested in bringing intergenerational music groups to your residents? Do you have a loved one living in a facility who might benefit from these groups? Contact us today:Admin@AnnapolisMusicTherapy.com410-697-1812
