Melissa 7th Jan 2016 Diversional Therapist
Wow. Just wow. This resource created one of the most memorable activities I've ever done. We could only get through about half today but I'm going to create a Spotify playlist so I can play the songs with the lyrics next time. Looking forward to it!

*Guys, if you ever get stuck for music for an activity i.e., last post, anthems, hymns, any song from the wartime, relaxing music etc. use the Spotify App! It has pretty much every song you can think of, costs $13 a month and needs internet to access songs but so worth it!

My residents will love singing to these songs surely going to bring some memories back and a great quiz too
