Aged Care Narratives » Virtual concert with Phil & Susie
July 2, 2020
Written by Rachel Bailey
The Arcare Caulfield clients were happy to join in and make music alongside performers Susie and Phil, during their most recent Zoom concert in June.
The clients were encouraged to use their own instruments to engage with their performances. Although the clients’ instruments made quite the racquet, they had a wonderful time getting involved.
Many clients chose to get up and dance along to the familiar songs that Susie and Phil played during the hour long performance.
After the concert concluded, many clients said that they were exhausted from all the dancing and music making.
