Volunteering is on again – as well as doing a Morning Tea ’run’ I also give a hand when there’s entertainment. No, not doing an all singing all dancing routine – just assisting, guiding, seating, reassuring, as well as enjoying whoever is on the bill.
Many of the residents have memory loss so can be a little lost at times, watching and listening, possibly not understanding – until something piques their interest, then their demeanour changes.
Last week we had a young man come in and sing a few songs, folk songs, show songs, some country some soft rock…..something for everyone.
But what really seemed to jog their memory – had many of them sitting taller – mouthing long forgotten words – was what he sang as his final number.
The Holy City – sung all over the world at Christmas as well as Easter
A favourite at Melbourne’s annual Carols By Candlelight – performed by David Hobson
I hope you enjoy my Musical Memory on this Easter Monday
