Care Home Music and Movement Sessions


Adele provides tailor made, Dementia friendly, music and movement sessions within care homes in Leicestershire.  Designed to get residents moving, smiling and evoking memories; these well-structured hour long sessions are engaging, stimulating and enjoyed by all involved.


Primarily focussed on chair based exercise (but including standing options for those who want them), each session starts with the same song each session to welcome, sing and sway along to.  We then explore and follow the journey of a theme, which comprises a range of different music that we enjoy and move to.  We then end the session with the same song to say farewell until next time. The sessions themselves work on two levels – evoking memories through music and using music to encourage movement. 


There’s conversation and interactivity with the participants throughout.  Adele learns the names of the participants very quickly and interacts throughout the sessions, encouraging each and every participant feel involved and engage in their individual way. 

The movements we use are carefully crafted to encourage gentle strength building and mobility across all areas of the body, with options to suit all mobility levels.  A range of props such as cheer pompoms, sensory scarves, shaker eggs and ribbons are used in each session, to provide further enjoyment and promotion of movement.

By using our themes and carefully selected music that will resonate with the participants, we create an environment that engages participants in the activity of movement, whilst singing, reminiscing and enjoying music of times gone by.


Every session uses visual aids to help participants keep connection with the activity, as well as following the same session structure.  This is particularly important in supporting participants with Dementia.  Adele works hard to learn from participants their likes, dislikes and background (such as previous jobs, family etc) and uses these within the sessions to encourage reminiscing and enjoyment.


Dancing Adele is now available for weekly, fortnightly or monthly sessions at care homes in Leicestershire.  Current availability includes: Monday AM, Monday PM, Tuesday AM, Tuesday PM, Wednesday AM and alternate Friday PM.  A one-off taster session is available for any homes considering our periodical sessions.
