Soundbite: Hospital Notes: Arts at the Heart of the Royal United Hospital

A programme of high quality musical workshops for patients on one of the Older People’s Unit (OPU), Combe Ward, planned and delivered by Musician in Residence, Rosanna Campbell (2011)

Research has shown that taking part in musical activities can improve the health and well-being of older adults, particularly those who suffer from dementia. Music can be seen as a way of communicating feelings that people with dementia might otherwise have difficulty expressing. But above all music is a fun, social and rewarding activity. This report includes detailed information of the project and an evaluation of the impact of the programme on the well-being of older patients at the RUH.
