Connecting through Music Project

Music Companions

 Do you recall the music of your teens & early 20s? How does it make you feel when you hear it? We are introducing iPods and individualised playlists to 25 residents with dementia living at Macquarie Park. We need volunteers who are happy to sit with or maybe even walk or dance with residents as they listen to their individualised music – even 30 mins each week can make a real difference.

For more information, please call Marleina Fahey on (02) 9023 2708 or via MFahey@baptistcare.org.au
