Extra Care Residents are Singing From the Same Hymn Sheet

After a year and a half hiatus, the residents’ choir of Rosewell House Extra Care Housing Scheme is delighted to be back together, singing their hearts out.

The sound of singing filled the Tonbridge scheme last week, as residents were overjoyed to be able to regroup as a choir and spend an afternoon singing together.

With resident, Vera Mangold, on the keyboard, the keen singers gave it their all, practicing their singing, whilst feeling their stresses and worries slip away.

Jackie Little, Housing Officer at Rosewell House commented: “Our choir has been unable to get together since before the pandemic, so it’s lovely to see them enjoying themselves again.”

Singing is proven to be incredibly beneficial for older people, not only can it increase self-confidence and interaction; it can help with good posture and communication.
