"...We have seen numerous benefits but first and foremost it is a pleasurable experience. One client is noticeably less agitated after using it and two clients have started speaking other languages (which they have not done for a long time). It is also an activity that can be used by carers with their cared for..."

“There’s something about that tool that gets her doing things she hasn’t done for a long time and it’s very pleasing to see.
I think it’s great to see the MindHarp bringing back part of her brain process that she hasn’t used for many years"
Son of Ginette who has been working and playing with the MindHarp
"MindHarp is an inspiring application... It brings joy to people who can only be focused in the present. A great means to bridge between young and old . I love it!"
"...Carers have also responded with fascination – engaging with those using the harp, trying it out for themselves, and repeatedly saying the feel calmer and more relaxed. Certainly we have seen an emotional reaction from all of those who engage with the harp. For some the reaction is enjoyment, elation, for others it allows the expression of the darker emotions of sadness, grief and even anger. I am glad to have a tool that allows such emotions to be expressed safely where they can be met with support and love..."

Thanks Stewart & Mark. I have been with two residents 1-1 for some mini mindharp time. I just had someone who has been non verbal for a few weeks now speak to me and laugh at me. It was a heartwarming, beautiful moment.
Thanks both –its amazing!

"By working as the primary carer I have been witness to its many benefits upon my clients. MindHarp, especially when used regularly has increased client participation in activities and their general involvement in day-to-day life at the centre. They appear to be more alert, more interested and overall happier since being introduced to the MindHarp technology. Client wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem have also seemed to drastically improve in the clients involved in using the MindHarp. .."

"Using the MindHarp at our groups has led to some great interactions and really interesting conversations. MindHarp is not only about music. It can be used to support a wide variety of stimulating activities.
Our experience of using the MindHarp has been that it is easy to use, without the need to be a skilled musician and most of all: Good fun!"
Group Coordinator, Alzheimer's society
"MindHarp enables our clients to express themselves in different ways. I have seen a sort of ‘free-ing up’ of behaviours and actions. Very anxious clients seem to get a calmness from the different sounds..."
Senior Care Assistant, The Peggy Dodd Centre
"I have worked with Stewart and Mark over the last year and have witnessed the immediate benefits of using the MindHarp …I cannot recommend it highly enough."
