Health & Harmony
Health & Harmony is an outreach music programme specially developed to meet the needs of those individuals and their families living with dementia.
This programme brings professional musicians into nursing homes and care settings around Ireland for bi-monthly performances, enhancing the quality of life for over 200 patients, carers and their families.
Playing familiar songs and pieces, our musicians engage with the audience on an informal and personal level, and everyone is encouraged to join in.
This year with additional funding from Dublin City Council and the HSE National Lottery Grants we have been able to expand this project to include a further three centres nationally.
We know this programme makes a difference – we ran an evaluation of our work which you can read about here.
