mindharp for carers
Mindharp for Carers is used in care and other settings (Dementia, Autism, rehabilitation at Bristol children’s hospital – sensory unit). It was originally developed directly with people living with dementia and their carers at the Peggy Dodd Day Care Centre in Bath over a 12 month period. It is now used by progressive care homes and award-winning carers and activity coordinators and was recognised in the UK’s most prestigious Dementia Care Awards.
MindHarp is unique. It generates beautifully crafted musical sounds at the touch of a button. It’s a deeply rewarding and enriching activity. MindHarp engages the player physically, mentally and emotionally. Players and carers can lead, participate or follow. It requires no learning, musical background or ability. It is suitable for usage by activity coordinators, music therapists and general carers.
Sessions can be relaxing, stimulating, sociable, immersive and often lead to all sorts of unexpected conversation, song and laughter. See our activities page for detailed ideas and inspiration.
