In a society where so many of the older generation feel isolated and alone, Rhythm Time has begun bringing their award winning pre-school music classes into residential care homes where children, mums and older people come together to sing.

Studies show that music is particulary beneficial for people struggling with memory loss and advanced dementia, and the classes have certainly brought much joy into the retirement homes that Rhythm Time visits, both for the children and the adults.

In the words of Lesley Carter, clinical lead at charity Age UK, “I have seen it so often, when a child touches the hand of somebody who is perhaps very withdrawn, and not really speaking, and all of a sudden that person is alive. It’s really humbling.”
