West Belfast’s musical sons and daughters are preparing to come together to celebrate and showcase their ‘greatest hits’ at a gala evening in the Devenish on Saturday, August 31, 2019.
Connected Health is proud to be a sponsor of this event. Lorraine Corr, Service Manager, Connected Health said “Music has a special place in hearts of so many of our clients, it has been well documented about the links between music and the benefits it can bring to those suffering from dementia. The memories that music can bring back provides such an emotional benefit to our clients.”
Connected Health believes in really getting to know their clients and have introduced a “Getting to Know Me” fact sheet for all new clients. It allows Carers to know clients likes and understand more of their personal history. Delivering excellent care at home is about much more than just looking after a person’s health conditions.
Judith Marcus, Quality Monitoring officer for Connected Health added “I’ve had personal experience of Dementia and seen the impact that music made for my father. Back in 2017 I was lucky enough to become one of the first Dementia Champions through my role with Connected Health. Being able to engage with Clients about their favourite music artists adds more satisfaction to the role of being a Community Care Assistant.”
Connected Health is excited to celebrate the musical performers who have entertained us in high times, consoled us in low times, set our feet tapping and our souls soaring.
Connected Health is hiring Community Care Assistants across Belfast and you can apply and find out more about the role by calling into their Recruitment & Training Academy in the Park Centre, Belfast.
