What goes on in a Village With Seniors class?

Every week, volunteers and family members of residents bring the residents to/from classes. They also help hand out/collect instruments and props to the seniors, and enjoy helping them to participate by clapping/tapping their hands for them or encouraging them to sing to the babies. From time to time, visitors arrive as well, such as the nursing staff, director, board members, who like to hang at the back of the room and sway/bop together to the music! They drop in to see what all the excitement is about and stay. Practically everyone who comes to a Kindermusik Village with Seniors class gets completely involved and engrossed in the experience.

A typical class includes lots of singing, dancing, rocking babies on seniors’ laps, partnering games, cuddles and hugs, as well as props and instruments, such as willowy scarves for movement and peek-a-boo games, mirrors, egg shakers, jingle bells, drums, and more. Activities are selected for a variety of interactive possibilities; seniors feel free to participate as much or as little as they desire or are able. The music is often familiar to the seniors, which helps fire neural pathways, awaking memories of childhood and child rearing. Seniors in the program find a great deal of joy and satisfaction in observing the growing participation and development of the babies over the course of eight/sixteen weeks, and the senior participation grows stronger with every class.
