It’s important to have music in our lives! Music can lower the body’s reaction to feelings of stress and anxiety. Music helped many of us with the anxiety we felt during the early days of the pandemic and continues to support us.

Our therapeutic recreation team has adapted program favorites to the virtual world so Westminster Canterbury residents can stay engaged with the things they love. Our certified Music and Memory program remains a constant.

Susan Carol’s musical presentations provide residents with a sense of well-being. Research by the Mayo Clinic suggests that listening to or singing songs can provide emotional and behavioral benefits for people with dementia. Distant memories rekindle and new memories are made through these musical connections.

Susan’s music continues to be a blessing to our campus.
Westminster Canterbury-Lynchburg needs your help to ensure the music keeps playing and this program stays on the calendar. Your tax-deductible contribution, regardless of the amount, will help us continue to offer the benefits of music.

"We had the wonderful experience of hearing the union of two instruments, the harp and the harmonica. My husband, Joe, just lit up and joined right in with his harmonica."
