Music therapy is enriching the lives of residents living at Baptistcare Gracewood Residential Care.

Proving silent discos aren’t just for the young, Baptistcare Gracewood Residential Care is bringing the party to their seniors in Salter Point.

As part of their music therapy program, Baptistcare Gracewood residents living with dementia don their headphones, tune into a pre-set station, and boogie along to playlists of their favourite hits, from the 50s to the 70s.

Music therapy yields promising outcomes for residents with dementia, contributing to a noticeable increase in their overall happiness and mental wellbeing.

Research shows it can be effective in reigniting memory as auditory memory is among the earliest neural pathways established during our first few months in the womb.

Silent discos are just one of the therapeutic activities happening at Gracewood.

Residents also participate in beauty treatments with weekly manicure appointments.

They indulge in the full relaxing aromatherapy salon experience, having their hands massaged and their nails cut, filed, cleaned and painted.These programs not only provide mental and physical stimulation, but also an opportunity for residents to build lasting social connections at an incredibly important stage in their lives
