improvised songs as interaction

Very successful morning at stocksbridge brain injury unit.  I am using more and more improvised song making with more able clients and this is proving to be a very enjoyable technique for enjoyable and meaningful two way interactions.  One resident talked about his old Mercedes convertible and how he would drive with the roof down to a hotel in Bowness by Windermere.  He talked about a wonderful hotel and ow the “little things make something really special”. This last statement became the chorus and soon he was describing the other special things he had seen like going down the winding side roads, seeing the lambs giving birth, hiring out a motorboat and feeding the ducks.  He really enjoyed the session and found it “ever so relaxing”
