The magic of music

Classic LifeCare was pleased to recently deliver a music therapy session for long-term Calgary client Ed. 

Jennifer Buchanan of JB Music Therapy strummed her guitar and sang timeless classics.  A cowboy at heart, Ed took on a most peaceful demeanour while his wife, Gloria, danced about the room like a woman posessed! Jennifer continued the serenade with some classic Johnny Cash and also delivered ‘It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” by Alan Jackson, having learned the song specifically because it was a favorite of Ed and Gloria’s. 

She wound down the session with songs like ‘Happy Trails to You.’  What a gratifying scene: Ed so alert and his eyes fixed on Jennifer with Gloria and caregiver Alice cutting a rug in the background.
