Wirral, Cheshire West & North Wales - adults


.
Kiddleydivey has been providing therapeutic music sessions within care and nursing homes since 1996. All sessions have been devised by founder and music therapist, Sally Murphy, and are designed to support residents continued mobility, social interaction, connection with memory and quality of life.

The music sessions are lively, fun and interactive. The songs and music we use have been selected following many years of research into which songs are the most popular and generate favourable responses from our clients

There are different themes and resources for each session - ribbon bangles, hats, scarves and bubbles to name just a few.
Residents are encouraged to participate in gentle warm up exercises, doing as much or as little as they want to.
The sessions are structured with a warm up, themed resources section and instrumental participation. Conversation is encouraged where appropriate, particularly as the genre of songs we use stimulate memories. The residents are encouraged to sing along to the songs they know and perhaps even get up and dance if able or engage in safe movement from a seated position.
I am delighted to bring Kiddleydivey to Wirral, Cheshire West and North Wales, it is such a privilege to be able to deliver these fantastic sessions within the homes and see the responses and happiness that they produce.

In my ‘previous life’ I was a Deputy Head of a large special school on Merseyside and have taught for over 20 years. I have always enjoyed music playing piano and clarinet when I was younger and I currently singing in a pop choir.
Being able to make a living through this love of music now is a joy!
What I love about Kiddleydivey is the fact that Sally is a music therapist and this gives the sessions more depth and content. I have seen residents literally blossom during sessions with their posture opening up and their levels of engagement and communication increasing significantly. The level of interaction I have with the residents is regularly commented upon and this is a key element of our sessions - never underestimate the power of holding someone's hand!
