Our Work

Residential Care Homes

We have been running music groups in the City of York Council Residential Homes for almost eight years. These groups are slightly different from our community groups, as they cater only for those who live in the homes. However, we do welcome relatives of the residents, as often this can be a lively activity for people to participate in, with their loved ones.

“My mother interacts very well during the sessions...Before her stroke she was always the quiet, introverted one, and now to see her interacting and laughing and singing with all the others is lovely...Even though she has short-term memory loss, she still looks forward to the music group, and remembers all the songs. Music takes away her inhibitions – she comes out of her shell.”

Sue Bunday, daughter of a resident at Haxby Hall.

We regularly put photos on Facebook, so please “like” our page if you know someone living in a City of York care home, so that we can keep you updated of the activities we are doing.
