Recapture The Moment

 

Recapture The Moment

 

Thanks to The Funding Network we are now into rehearsals for Recapture The Moment – our trial of interactive performance with residents in dementia units.

The program involves a reminiscence box containing items to spark interest and recall and the format will revolve around show tunes from The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady, which research has shown us contain the most well known showtime songs among current seniors.

Throughout October/November our two accomplished performers, Alinta Carroll and Caitlin Beresford-Ord, will be visiting residential facilities throughout the metropolitan region and beyond from the northern suburbs down to Bunbury courtesy of both Bethanie and Baptistcare support services.

We will be conducting an evaluation process in order to refine the program for intended wider distribution in 2016.
