Care Home Choir is Music to Residents’ Ears

Residents at Edward Moore House Residential Care Home in Gravesend are keeping their spirits up and their voices in check with a new weekly choir.

Despite a second lockdown looming, residents of the Trinity Road care home are keeping morale high and they’ve found a great way to lift one another’s spirits and have some fun, in the form of a residents’ choir.

Every week, the keen singers get together in the dining room to socialise, warm up their vocal chords and sing a variety of songs, including plenty of old classic favourites.

Melanie Martin, Deputy Manager at Edward Moore House said: “Our residents love their new choir and they can’t wait to get stuck in every week. With visiting entertainers still not able to come into the home, we’ve introduced some new creative activities to keep things fresh and keep everyone’s spirits up and the choir is definitely a hit!

“We know that singing is incredibly beneficial for older people, particularly those living with dementia, as it’s excellent for promoting wellbeing and generally improving their quality of life. Research has found that older people who were part of a choir found that they experienced improved self confidence and better interaction with others, in addition to reduced anxiety and depression.”
