The Harmony Hub is a dementia friendly radio broadcast running on the community radio station Phoenix FM on 96.7 FM every Monday at 1pm.
There is a list of past podcasts for anyone who is interested:
The show is mainly aimed at elderly people and those with dementia, struggling with isolation, especially now that several of their usual activities are cancelled, causing additional disruptions to their routine.
The show includes some guided movement while listening to memorable songs as well as interviews with inspiring elders and guest slots with local musicians.
Also supplied are supporting handouts, activity and reflectio packs which would provide a basis for conversation, memory sharing and some ideas and materials for a related art activity.
Here’s a link to some more information about the project on the Awakening Arts website:
There will be regular check-ins with listeners, both individuals and care home residents, who will help guide and refine the show; making sure that it will best serve older residents at this time.
Awakening Arts are really keen to reach individuals self-isolating at home and have creativity and reflection packs to send out to people in their homes. If you would like to receive one of their art packs, please get in touch.
