Are you an unpaid carer for a friend or family member?
We have developed a fun and interactive workshop looking at the power of music and how you can use music to empower your health and enrich your life using “My Music Oasis”.
“My Music Oasis” is a workshop designed for people caring for others which recognises and celebrates the vital role that carers play in supporting others, often at a significant cost to themselves. It provides an opportunity to meet other carers and socialise whilst creating your own personalised playlist.
Participants receive a “My Music Oasis” toolkit from musicworks to keep and use.
Music has been shown to ease physical discomfort and pain, ease emotional distress, promote spiritual awareness, aid relaxation, enhance relationships, improve quality of life, support life review and bring joy and positivity.
What Carers have said about the workshop:
“When I attended ‘My Music Oasis’ for Carers I wasn’t sure what to expect, I walked into the room with some trepidation. I needn’t have worried, the welcome was warm and friendly. We spent a lovely afternoon sharing favourite tunes and recounting the memories they evoked. There were lots of smiles and laughter with a few tears in between. At the end of the workshop there was a real buzz. We left with new found friendships and our spirits high. I love playing my playlist, it encourages me to take time out for myself. The workshop was a really enjoyable experience, one I would recommend to other Carers.”
“Really enjoyed my afternoon. Lovely sociable time. Evoked some wonderful memories and sad ones! Helpful being with other carers. I’m looking forward to using my toolkit and spending some time focussed on me!”
“This workshop has been extremely informative and a great support to carers.”
