The group sings and engages through action songs like hokey tokey, macarena and some basic kapa haka. Emphasis is on enjoyment for the client group, encouraging them to join in any way they can, so being comfortable around older and disabled people is important. Our group has regular monthly visits to rest homes and aged care facilities. The roster is set so planning for this commitment is easy... (e.g. 2nd Tuesday each month) The sessions are 1 hour long and are usually followed by refreshments provided by rest home.
