NALW Idea: A Chorus of Voices

Katherine Preede

As the school year begins, consider reaching out to your local elementary and high schools for partnerships during National Assisted Living Week®, September 7-13. One of the most magical aspects of music is that it spans across the generations. Invite local elementary schools to come and perform for and then visit with your residents. Also consider also inviting some high school jazz bands to come and perform for your residents.

Residents will love to listen to and sing along with student choirs and students will learn an incredible amount from this generation. Contact your local school district to see if it is possible to have students come in during National Assisted Living Week® to sing and interact with residents and hone their musical skills.
