Jane’s program was unique and entertaining.
The residents enjoyed Jane’s performance very much. They tell me “She makes us feel young, brings back memories and puts a smile on our faces.“
The residents really respond to Jane’s music and personality. A resident told me that “Jane’s music is like sunshine”.
Jane’s performances are always high energy. Her variety of tunes reaches all the residents for it taps into long-term memory-evoking verbal and non-verbal responses, movements and sparks conversation that continues after the program. Enhancing her program would be difficult for we already like all she does.
