Music therapy group and research

Published on 13/12/2018

We are happy to announce a new singing group - come and join us every Friday. No experience necessary!

Our occupational therapist Pippa will lead the group along with specialist music therapy support. 

We'll be using ‘active music therapy’, using singing or instrument playing for example, and ‘passive music therapy’, where patients listen to live or recorded music. 

The group setting will be informal and small, with 8-10 patients and carers where appropriate. 

Offering a music group for those with more advanced dementia will deliver highly beneficial distraction and relaxation music therapy work. 

This new programme of patient and carer support is part of an 18 month project funded by the Essex Trust, and will be directly linked in to our current memory clinic intervention work.

The project will provide practical occupational therapy sessions teaching restorative techniques and compensatory strategies for patients. 

Please confirm if you are interested in joining!

Join us every Friday from 11.00 - 12.15 at the RICE Centre, Royal United Hospital, Bath, BA1 3NG
