Residents enjoyed singalong and poetry sessions this morning. Some chose their favourite songs and we played these accompanied by percussion instruments. Staff recited some poems and limericks, with a few choosing to recite alongside or even read a poem out loud themselves. This was used both as a group activity (with the help of the Memory Ball) to encourage communal participation and also as a one-to-one activity for those who are more hard of hearing. Worked well as both.
