Choir

Six senior adults happily singing from song books. Music is an effective method of communication, a calming strategy and reminiscence tool. Favourite tunes can be used to prompt special memories of people, places and events.

It has been proven that when used as therapy, music has positive effects on our physiology, affecting our heart rate, blood pressure and nervous system. Singing in particular decreases agitation, improves comprehension, lifts mood, and builds trust and self-confidence.

Our ‘Friends in Harmony’ choir is comprised of people living with dementia and their carers. ‘Friends in Harmony’ sing every Thursday afternoon at Alzheimer’s Australia WA’s Shenton Park office conference room from 1.30pm – 3.30pm.
