For 20 years Kiddleydivey has provided therapeutic music based activities for the elderly, and this 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, the elderly generally. 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.

About Eve Whitmore
Hi, my name is Eve and the little girl in the photo with me is my “mini me” daughter Emily. I live on the outskirts of Shrewsbury with my husband Leon and our children Emily and Oliver. I am a Shropshire girl born and bred, enjoying music from an early age. For me, Kiddleydivey provides the perfect combination of meeting new and fascinating people on a daily basis, while revelling in the opportunity to express my love of music as a brilliant tool that can profoundly help others.
Everyday I visit care homes across Shropshire, Wolverhampton and Mid Wales where I am lucky enough to experience the positive effects that our therapeutic music sessions have on the lives of the residents. It is an incredibly special feeling to witness elderly people, some suffering from advanced dementia, transforming from uncommunicative to animated, restoring their identity.
We know that there is a huge difference between being elderly and feeling elderly.
