Health in Harmony

Health & Harmony

Health & Harmony was an outreach music programme specially developed to meet the needs of those patients and their families living with dementia.  This programme brought professional musicians into nursing homes and care settings around Ireland for bi-monthly performances, enhancing the quality of life for over 200 patients, careers and their families over 12 months.

During Health & Harmony, the National Concert Hall worked closely with the Alzheimer Society of Ireland and the care settings and medical personnel involved to carefully tailor a live music programme to those patients, their families and carers living with dementia. The main aim of the project was to bring live musicians into each setting, to enhance the quality of life for long and short-term care patients, to inspire expression through music, to develop a framework to support the continued development of music programmes in each setting and to support and encourage the rollout of similar music programmes throughout Ireland in the future.

We want to bring Health and Harmony back to life. We have worked hard to secure €13,000 funding to reignite this inspiring project but we need your help to raise a further €5,000 so this project can go ahead. Our deadline of October 31st is fast approaching so we need your help right now.

We know this programme makes a difference – we ran an evaluation of our work last year which you can read about here.

Any donation you make will be greatly appreciated, and will be fully invested in the Health & Harmony outreach programme.
