|For 22 years Kiddleydivey has provided therapeutic music based activities for adults, and last year Eve was Runner-Up at the Telford & Wrekin Council Active Lifestyle Awards.
Each Kiddleydivey session has been compiled by a music therapist and doctor of musicology to help to improve the quality of life for those who have limited mobility, dementia, other vulnerabilities and of course, adults in general. Participants are encourage to join us for themed sessions, where activities include singing, gentle dancing where appropriate and the use of a wide range of props.
Working with nearly 80 residential and nursing homes, day centres and community groups throughout Shropshire, Wolverhampton and Mid Wales, Kiddleydivey is specifically designed to encourage gentle exercise, activity and social interaction, as well as to stimulate memory function and conversation. Music evokes and entertains, connects us with memories, past and present pleasures, promotes social interaction and encourages exercise with fun and enjoyment.
Eve Whitmore & the TeamHi, my name is Eve and I live on the outskirts of Shrewsbury with my husband Leon and our children Emily and Oliver. As you can see from the photos, if you have booked us during the school holidays you are likely to get the children accompanying me too!
I am thrilled to have been recognised as a Mumpreneur and also by Telford and Wrekin Council, however, it is the glowing testimonials from our clients that mean the most to me. Kiddleydivey is a marvellous concept and through it we get to meet fascinating people and help them to reconnect with their memories.
"Just a quick email to say thank you for organising my mom to join in with you yesterday. I know she really enjoyed it because when I saw her at lunchtime she was swaying her feet and drumming her fingers.
I missed seeing you as I really enjoyed Kiddleydivey last month. Hopefully I will be able to make next month.
Take care. You are an amazing person." Heatherdene Resident's daughter, Oswestry
The last year has seen Kiddleydivey Shropshire, Mid Wales & Wolverhampton expand our team to meet the ever increasing demand and and to support me while I was receiving my treatment. I am happy to say that I am back at work now full time but we have also been able to keep on the wonderful Mo.
"I first met Eve about 4 years ago and she has been coming to the care home where I work every month ever since. I find Kiddleydivey excellent, she has a very caring and understanding personality which is reflected in her work. Eve has the ability to assess the individuals capabilities very quickly and can adapt her 'exercises' to suit. She makes a point of talking to each person and learning their name. I have experienced several residents reacting during Kiddleydivey's session that would normally fail to take part. Her session never fails to make an impact on the residents who always end up singing and smiling. She brings joy to all who meet her...I would highly recommend her work" Cottage Christian Care Home, Newport
