Melodies and Memories are all about sharing our favourite songs in a group and encouraging conversations about memories the music evokes.
Melodies and Memories are held at Emerald Hill Residence on Level 1 every Wednesday afternoon, and at South Port Residence every Friday afternoon during happy hour.
The CaSPA Care Choir is thriving with a number of residents from all levels of Emerald Hill Residence joining along every Thursday morning at 11am.
Our newest member Les Sedal is a brilliant pianist who has been accompanying us every week as we sing along to our favourite songs.
All residents are welcome and its not mandatory to sing along, many of our members enjoy watching and listening to us.
Hey Dee Ho Music and Neighbourhood House have teamed up to present intergenerational music classes in both our Emerald Hill Residence and South Port homes.
15 children from Neighbourhood House come into our homes and participate in a Het Dee Ho Music class and our residents are invited to join as much as possible. It’s a great way to connect our children with the elderly in our community and everyone always leaves with beaming smiles!
