Oh, wow, I tried Nursery Rhymes last night. I was careful to choose an adult singing, not a squeaky child (all due respect) and I was blown away by the calming effect late at night in the dementia house. The nurse and I were also getting right into the tunes, quietly singing as well. It was as effective as hymns have been in the past. I used Apple Music streaming "40 Favourite Nursery Rhymes - The Best Children's Songs Ever!" Very similar to Patsy Bisco style, Heather.

I have also done this with pictures that I have printed from the computer and laminated. This idea is good for small groups and you can lead into reminiscing about other nursery rhymes from this. This is also a good game with any residents...especially those without dementia as you can read the reasons behind the rhymes to them and see if they agree with it.

Hi Carol, thank you for your feedback. Spotify is in fact very good to play this game because it allows you to pause at any time. Best wishes.
