Drum Circle Activity for the Elderly

What a great idea, Rebecca! We have a professional drum circle facilitator coming in to lead a drum circle later this month- I'll be paying attention to how the residents respond, and if they like it, I'll approach my director to see if we could budget for some exercise balls and baskets to hold our own mini drum circles! I've been wanting to start one since I started here, but we don't have any drums, and they can be expensive!

Drum Circle Activity for the Elderly

Rebecca- how do the exercise balls stay in place? I'm a music therapist just hired on as an activities assistant, and my supervisor is dying for me to conduct a drum circle, but we have zero drums and a limited budget- I'm wondering if the exercise balls would be a good option for us!
