A singing project for care homes and residential settings.
People around Pembrokeshire are being invited to participate in SPAN’s ‘Remote Choir’. Remote Choir is a singing project, which uses technology to bring people in different residential locations together in order to improve health and wellbeing.
When? Join Molara for a New Season which starts Friday 1st October 10am and 11am sessions. followed by a season of regular weekly sessions on Zoom.
Where? On Zoom however, depending on COVID guidelines we are hoping that some sessions will be delivered in person.
This is a fully funded project, please contact Nia Lewis to register interest: firstname.lastname@example.org
In our previous Remote Choir project 130 people were included, 10 of whom were housebound. Health conditions included dementia, autism, COPD, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, ME and depression.
Through 40 1:2:1 sessions and 2 celebration events the project met its aims and was described as “life-changing”, “important”, “positive”.
People experienced measurable increases in:
· Quality of life
· Digital skills
· Community connections
· Feelings of worth
· Confidence in singing
We were very proud when this project was used as a case study on Wales Arts Health & Wellbeing Network website and also cited in an NHS briefing paper.
