Music gives vulnerable people a better quality of life
Music enrichens our lives. Music moves us, lifts people out of their feeling of isolation and gives a certain confidence. That’s why music means so much to lives of vulnerable people.
EMBRACE Nederland has developed innovative music programmes to help vulnerable people to a better quality of life. By vulnerable people we mean elderly people who live at home alone or in care and nursing homes, elderly people with dementia and people with disabilities. Professionals, accompanied by amateur musicians, work together to realise these music programmes.
We also organise trainings for carers, volunteers and care staff to teach them to use music in their daily care tasks. The trainings give them a different non-verbal way to communicate with vulnerable people. This contributes to a better quality of life, more connection to one another and a more comfortable work environment.
Current projects are the ‘Music & Dementia’ workshops and inclusive music theatre ANDERS!.
