Songs and Poetry

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.
