Jo Sparks Music Activity Sessions

Howdenshire, York


The arts, crafts and music activity sessions include activities which are simple, age appropriate and can be done by people who have sight, dexterity or cognitive difficulties. They involve gentle movements to music, seated dancing, including circle dancing, singing and making music.

The sessions are suitable for older people regardless of their physical or cognitive ability and are particularly suitable for people affected with dementia. More information can be found at www.josparks.co.uk, which has many photos of the sessions in action.

The aim is to provide an opportunity for older people to actively participate in the sessions, reduce isolation, increase confidence and enjoy music and seated dance and movement as a group.

My sessions are offered to groups run by charities, day care and residential care settings, nursing homes, memory cafes etc.
