I joined the team at Strachan after qualifying as a music therapist in 2008 and I visit the home on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
We have two weekly music group sessions that are popular with residents who enjoy participating through singing, playing an instrument or dancing.
I also work closely with the physiotherapy staff, providing musical support for the exercise classes, as well as combined one-to-one sessions where appropriate.
There are some residents who I see regularly on a one-to-one basis and this sometimes involves singing with them by their bedside.
I really enjoy my job and continue to be amazed at the positive impact music can bring in a care home setting, particularly to those living with dementia.
