This coming week is a very exciting one at Harley Street Care. As a premium homecare provider in London, the support of our community is crucial to us, and we are always brainstorming and thinking of ways in which we can truly strengthen and lift our community in an innovative and revolutionary manner. You will see one of those initiatives come to life after the weekend.
Last week we spoke about the deficits of the NHS and other homecare services in providing care to the 2.3 million elderly that need assistance with daily activities. Our initiative in helping close that deficit will be launching very soon, but we have another unique experience to share with you, and as one of our blog readers, you will be the first to hear about it.
In conjunction with an immersive classical arts production company, Vox Vanguard, Harley Street Care will be announcing a truly spectacular and unique fundraising event for Alzheimer’s Society.
We here at HSC are experts in the most current and groundbreaking treatments and therapies for Alzheimer’s and other Dementia related diagnosis, but a time honoured approach to relieving symptoms of these syndromes has always been music therapy. We feel that there is no better way to strengthen and lift our community than by sharing some of the greatest masterworks of the 20th century in an immersive and informative manner.
Studies show that music therapy over a 6-week period can significantly reduce activity disturbances, aggressiveness and anxiety within the Behaviour Pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease. Other symptoms seemed to be unaffected, but after an additional four weeks, the effects had mostly disappeared.
These results are astounding, particularly since a non-pharmaceutical solution, and that is why these studies have been our main inspiration in teaming up with such an exceptional organisation such as Vox Vanguard.
Our event will feature the music of Johann Strauss II, including a little waltz about a blue river you all know so well, as well as the music of Aaron Copland, a titan of the 20th century who left us in 1990 after losing the battle to Alzheimer’s Disease. These iconic works will be paired with speaking and dance elements, interactive healthcare booths and a silent auction.
We are thrilled to be presenting this one of a kind event and we hope you will share in the experience with us. ‘Tis the gift to be simple, ‘tis the gift to be free – ‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be – Watch this space for more information next week, as well as follow us on our Facebook page.
See you on May 4th for Harley Street Care’s Simple Gifts.
