Music Session Uniting Residents and Babies

2 minute read

Lakeside Care Home hosted its first ‘Create, Rattle & Roll’ session this month, open to the public to bring their ‘mini music makers’ to the group.

The session includes toddlers and parents joining residents at Lakeside to produce some music with Group Music Ambassador, Beth.

Beth’s aim was to create a musical conversation between generations.

“It was such a wholesome moment for all of us involved. Music transcends generations, weaving a harmonious tapestry that connects young and old in the timeless rhythm of life.

“These sessions create opportunities for interactions and connections that provide a sense of shared joy and fulfilment.”

Beth Peter-Forster, Music Ambassador

The sessions will be held at the home every Tuesday afternoon, allowing the group to develop and grow, and with support create some musical magic between residents and the young children.

Intergenerational music programs provide an opportunity for older adults to engage with younger generations, share their wisdom, and experience the joy of making music together.

These interactions can improve the quality of life for the elderly, promote a sense of purpose, and contribute to their overall well-being.

Music can provide a multitude of advantages for infants, supporting their overall growth and state of being in diverse manners.

Incorporating music into daily routines ensures that it remains a tool for bonding, learning, and sensory exploration, while also being enjoyable, safe, and sensitive to the baby's preferences and comfort.
