Live music is delivered by a variety of different individuals and organisations in care settings and community based venues across the UK.
Some specialise in training care staff to deliver music-based interventions themselves; some organisations bring professionally qualified musicians into care settings to perform and engage with residents. Others bring live music sessions which ranges in its degree of interactivity from performances, to tea dances, to participatory singing.
Whatever a care home chooses to do there is a vast array of amazing charities, organisations and music groups available to help with this. Ask your care home what live music they provide and use our ‘how to access it’ page to find out what services are available to you locally.
