Sing Along Songs
Sing Along Songs That Bring Back Memories!
Sing along songs for seniors can be some of the best nursing home music or group activity. They can energize a room very quickly. Sing along DVD's are great entertainment for seniors and are one of the best activities for dementia patients.
The elderly in your care will love to hear the songs they used to listen to on the radio in their younger years. Or the ones they sang with family and friends around the Christmas tree, or even those special hymns that take them back to years in the Sunday choir where they used to sing their heart out every week.
These will light up a room quickly and bring smiles to faces as they soon
remember a familiar tune. With sing along lyrics that you can print for all you need, or come with the music, everyone can join in the fun.
The music shouldn't be too fast, so the seniors can keep up with a tapping toe and clapping hands. The words on screen should be large enough, black on white, to be seen clearly and preferably without a bouncing ball to distract.
Why are sing-alongs beneficial to seniors?
If your nursing home, elder care facility, hospital or home is without a sing along series to watch and sing along with, than this would be a great time to try them for your residents. This is also a wonderful activity for a home nursing program.
There is one sing along series made specifically for seniors that we know has been proven beneficial by activity director's and caregivers for several years already. These were made with seniors in care specifically in mind. The DVD's and videos are of high quality, the onscreen lyrics are easy to read and there is no distracting bouncing ball either!
We recommend the Melodic Memories sing along series for seniors that features Christmas Songs, Classic Oldies as well as Hymns. Seniors appreciate that the singers and musicians are of all ages, including children! Visit Melodic Memories and you can read the many testimonials as well as view online demos of the actual DVD's themselves. No risk as there is a money back guarantee!
