More than ever, our audiences in Long-Term (LTC) and Memory Care, Assisted and Independent senior living residences need the joy, relief, and positive distraction of beautiful live music - classical, jazz, and songbook concerts. The musicians and staff of Concerts in Care Ontario have already recorded 4 of 7 live concert videos to share with as many residents in these facilities as can be reached.
With your help, we can make sure that as many of our aging population, now in complete lockdown without family or friends, have a variety of excellent live music videos recorded with our musicians speaking to the camera to connect with them, telling stories as well as performing. Feeling connected is key to mental and emotional health, especially during COVID-19.
We know that many LTC residents have no access to computers or wifi, so we are providing downloadable files for their managers to distribute via casting to television, or showing to small groups in socially distanced spaces.
