First of all, I love all the information and insightful activities presented! I work with Valerie and am a professional musician, who uses music, therapy and movement to encourage residents to move , sing and participate with music. I have taught, performed music for nearly 30 years and have a comment to the Covid music idea recently sent . In regards to instruments, I don't believe it is a good idea to allow loved ones to play instruments . Instruments are held closely, blown into and handled. This is perhaps not a good safety measure, and I wouldn't recommend it. I understand the idea and concept, and I play often for the residents, but I wouldn't feel comfortable allowing them to try instruments at this time. The only things are perhaps rhythm sticks or plastic egg shakers, and to clean them thoroughly after each use. Just a thought. Thanks again for all you do to help us make the lives of seniors productive and fun.
