I recently delivered to workshops at a conference for residential care activity co-ordinators. The event was organised by the Derbyshire County Council Arts in Health team and was very successful. The workshops were developed to give activity co-ordinators the confidence to introduce more singing and storytelling into their care home through the delivery of group and one-to-one sessions. Here is some of the feedback from the day.
“Brilliant workshop – gave me the confidence and ideas to do singing activities as I have always avoided doing them” Sarah from Ashfields
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the hour session. I was apprehensive at singing. I join in at work but [had] no confidence to start the singing off, but now I feel I will be able to”
“The class showed how easy it is to engage in telling stories whether on a one to one basis or in groups. Storytelling can be brought into every other activity – making up a story or tell a memory”
“This has given me some great ideas for a regular music session. Well done, I really enjoyed this and would have liked another hour”
