Musical visits with Northside Singers Inc at Arcare North Lakes

Musical concerts are a big thing at Arcare North Lakes.

So this time, we invited the Northside Singers Inc to bring some musical cheer to everyone’s week.

As they performed some country music, the clients sat back in their chairs and closed their eyes to enjoy the music.

“I remember some of these songs from my childhood!” a client said.

These songs brought back a lot of memories for the clients.

When they were younger, they would sit in the lounge room with their family and the record player would be playing in the background.

The Northside Singers Inc really bonded well with the clients at Arcare North Lakes, as most of the singers are retirees who enjoy singing and entertaining the elderly.

Coming from different music backgrounds, they sing golden oldies, musicals, gospel songs and more!

One of the band members is also music teacher who teaches the piano.

We are hoping to invite them to Arcare North Lakes for our weekly musical concerts.

Music therapy has so many wonderful physical and mental benefits for the clients here.

By listening to specific songs, it can improve their memory as it triggers special memories associated with that song.

Plus, it also brings them joy as they clap along or get up to dance to the music.
