Music therapy

Strengthen your mind and body with music therapy programs

The chance to exercise our creativity isn’t a privilege; in our experience, it’s a necessity. Our music therapy sessions are designed to keep our residents physically active as well as mentally and emotionally engaged.

The benefits of music therapy in nursing homes

Musical therapy is, without a doubt, an invaluable part of our holistic approach to aged care. And it isn’t solely for the creatively inclined or those who can already play instruments. Even listening and responding to recorded music provides an emotional outlet that dramatically improves morale and memory recall. 

  • Passive music therapy alleviates behavioural and psychological symptoms
  • Active music-making strengthens fine motor skills and cognitive performance
  • Group and individual music therapy session plans

Frequently asked questions

If you have any questions or concerns about our therapy services, you’re welcome to contact us.

Can families help or participate in musical therapy for their resident relatives?

Absolutely. We highly encourage you to attend any well-being and therapy classes your relative chooses to participate in. Your presence will make the class a far richer and more rewarding experience. Plus, a warm and familial atmosphere is exactly what we strive to create at Oxa Care.

How frequently do you schedule well-being programs for your residents?

We schedule daily well-being therapy classes. By alternating between classes, we give our residents that chance to experience a range of cognitive, creative and physical benefits. However, if a resident responds particularly well to music therapy, we can explore making it a regular part of their care.

How accessible are your music therapy programs?

Our music therapy is available to all residents, no matter their accessibility needs. Even immobile clients benefit from passive listening and being in community with the other residents. If you have any accessibility concerns, let us know, and we’ll discuss solutions.

What our aged care music therapy classes involve

Though we certainly do stress fun and relaxation, music therapy isn’t simply a ‘playtime’. Our sessions are run by a registered music therapist with significant experience. The goal of the therapy is physical and cognitive stimulation, and music provides an accessible and emotional context to practice valuable, relevant skills.

Our musical therapy sessions include:

  • Instrument lessons
  • Songwriting practice
  • Lyrical analysis
  • Communication and socialisation
  • Improvisation and creative development
