Bensalem, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2016 -- According to therapists and medical experts, the melody and rhythm of music can benefit the health of seniors in various ways. The leading retirement community based in Bensalem, PA, Wood River Village, continuously promotes healthy habits and an independent living lifestyle for their residents, who are 65 and older. Every month, the senior living home debuts a fun-filled activity calendar featuring entertainment, events, happenings, and activities.
This September, the resident activity calendar showcases a variety of opportunities involving music, from music programs and live performances by artists every other evening, to the showing of the musical film "Flower Drum Song" in the Community Room, to chorus group meetings and a Luau party with live music.
Wood River Village strives daily to ensure that their residents have the chance to have the highest quality of life, living every moment to the fullest. Their emphasis on music in the most recent activity calendar strongly coincides with the notion that listening to tunes can be advantageous to the health of seniors.
Music helps improve the mental and physical health of older individuals by promoting social interaction, calming nervousness, encouraging happy thoughts, motivating movement, reducing stress and enhancing speech skills.
"Our coordinators set up opportunities for music involvement so that our residents can reap the great benefits it has to offer," said Pam McDonnell, Marketing and Sales Director of Wood River Village.
