What’s the one thing that no matter where you are, who you’re with or how old you are, can make you smile and take you back in time to a place that made you happy? Music! At American House, music is a great way to unite residents and staff and create a lasting feel-good vibe throughout the community! And, best of all, it’s known that music benefits our physical AND mental health.
Here are some of the ways American House incorporates music into life around our communities and how residents can revel in the music, too:
Join the American House Choir
We have our very own choir that residents can join — and then travel to other communities to perform! Or, just attend performances to listen to the beautiful harmonies (and sing along if it’s that kind of performance (like during one of our Christmas Carol appearances)!
Visit with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra
We’re proud to have partnered with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to have some of the very talented musicians drop by American House to play for and interact with our residents. We’ve also taken residents to downtown Detroit to watch a DSO performance. Outstanding!
Sing on your own
You don’t have to be part of a group to get your groove on! Take it from American House resident Will, who we dubbed our own American House Idol because of his lovely ability to serenade residents with his wonderful voice! If you’ve got it in you, sing it!
Turn up the radio
You don’t need a stage, a microphone or even an audience to enjoy the benefits of music! Just turn on a radio and let the music flow until you start humming a little under your breath and dancing to the beat. You’ll be singing your heart out before you know it!
At American House, we do all we can to keep our residents happy and healthy and having fun — and music is a large part of that! Stop by an American House location close to you for a tour and you can see for yourself all the ways our residents enjoy themselves.
