Having some fun drumming
It is magical especially for those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other memory impairments. This week at The Rose of Poway we began individual drumming lessons to lay the foundation for our regular music therapy class beginning in September. With a pair of drumsticks in hand and a smile one resident said “I’m 82 years old learning to drum? Life is so wonderful, and I’m actually kind of good “.
All the residents were smiling and had a determination to play. The music brought back fond memories and turned the music session into a reminiscing talk about childhood music lessons that they loved.
