This is a Resource Guide for activity and health-care professionals involved in planning and implementing music programs for residents in care facilities. Service providers, children of aging parents, or parents or loved ones of those who need the help of a care facility know what works but they don’t always have a resource quick and handy to help them when they need to plan a program or help them make an existing program better or more effective.
The purpose of this guide is to make programming easier and save you time. And here’s the best part: you don’t even have to be musical to use these music programs in your care facilities. All you need is this guide and access to the Internet. The programs in this guide are user-friendly and designed to help anyone who wants to use music in a one-to-one or group setting. Simply follow the instructions. It saves you time and the programs are fun to do—that’s been proven over and over.
