Live Music Now in partnership with
MHA (Methodist Homes), the Orders of St John Care Trust and Winchester University led an enquiry to explore whether weekly music sessions, provided for staff and residents in care homes, support the care home environment to be a place where residents and staff are happy to live
and work. The evidence set out in this report supports Live Music Now’s
recommendation that every single UK care home should provide a regular music participation programme.
