A Choir in Every Care Home

A new set of free resources to inspire and support care homes to engage with music has been published by Live Music Now. Drawn together over the past two years, the new web resource includes a review of research into the impact of music on the lives of older people.

The project is a unique collaboration between 35 leading national organisations from adult social care, music and academic research. It is led by Live Music Now, Sound Sense and Canterbury Christ Church University, and funded by the Baring Foundation. It includes surveys of over 400 care home staff and musicians.
