Consider playing or viewing these videos on a Smart TV, computer, tablet, or mobile device. Keep in mind these general musical considerations in your set-up!
This is your one-stop-shop for activity outlines, lyric sheets and visual resources! We hope these will be helpful to care partners who are planning musical activities for those in their care.
We recommend printing the *Activity Outline to follow along with our video resources. All activities, lyrics sheets and visual prompts are included in the packet.
In addition to our activity resources, please reference our technology and activity tips, as well as our additional considerations for working with an individual with dementia and/or cognitive decline.
