Sing Out Loud Together

Sing Out Loud Together is designed for primary school children in years 4, 5 or 6. It involves an 8 week program linked to the national curriculum with a strong emphasis on literacy, history, science and technology. The school children research their elder buddy and it is through singing together that forms the basis of a strong connection. We work with both residential and community aged care services to help design innovative ways of connecting elders and their surronding community. An AHI "maestro" with special training for this program is the facilitator, liaising with both the school and the aged care service. This program uses the unique power of music to promote social engagement, elicit positive emotional responses and stimulate cognitive functioning in both healthy elderly and people living with dementia as they engage with young people.

Studies show that increased physical, cognitive, and social activity through intergenerational programs improves health for older people and educational learning for children.
