dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this proposal is to create seven distinct music therapy programs based on active music-making experiences for residents, out-patients, family, and caregivers at Wartburg, a nursing home and senior-living community in Mount Vernon, NY. Additionally, these programs could be implemented at any similar institution serving older adults and the community in which they live. The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF), led by Dr. Concetta Tomaino has made its home at Wartburg since 2019, and currently provides music therapy services. However, services have been severely limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other considerations. Increasing active music therapy programs at Wartburg will provide residents and their families and caregivers with the means to address cognitive, physiological, emotional, and social issues affecting them and their loved ones. Proposed music therapy programs are 1) intergenerational chorus; 2) therapeutic drumming; 3) jazz, rock, and classical chamber ensembles; 4) bell chime choir; and 5) songwriting/composition workshops for individuals. By establishing these programs, Wartburg will strengthen the scope of their mission of providing world-class care and support to the community and incorporating arts-based therapy into their care plan.en_US
