Creating Positive Outcomes

Silent Disco

Martha our activities co-ordinator at Whitebriars decided to try the activity of a silent disco.  She found a generous offer from @silentdisco4u, they are supporting care home's throughout lockdown by hiring at a discounted rate.

The activity was hugely successful at Whitebriars, there was an immediate joyous response, residents were cheerful and animated, singing out loud and dancing either in their chair or on their feet.

We then hired once again for our residents in St Leonards at Whitecliff and Whitebeach. It was particularly beneficial to those who are hard of hearing, allowing them a sense of escapism and entertainment in their own world.

The staff extended the use of the equipment to meal times and it was found that the music through the head phones really relaxed and calmed those residents who due to their dementia usually struggle to eat.

We are so pleased with the hugely beneficial results that we have ordered our own set which should arrive in April.
