Need Music Ltd are providing live care home music for the elderly. We believe music for everyone has a therapeutic value.
For older people, and people with dementia music from their past has been shown to enhance quality of life.
By having a musician like Stephen come in and perform gives people the chance to socialise and reminisce.
Invite our musician into your care home and you'll be amazed at the results.
Stephen J. Mordue, one of the musicians on Need Music’s roster, is passionate about working with people dementia and exploring the benefits of music and the arts for people with this condition.
