Janet Rice, Music Therapist at Parc Provence, appeared on Great Day St. Louis with several of our residents. The segment, which appeared on KMOV-TV, Channel 4, highlighted the many benefits of music therapy and showed rehearsals for the radio show members of our community with perform for the public during our Music Festival.
Music therapy uses a variety of techniques to engage participants with music in ways that stimulate the entire brain. From playing instruments and singing to simply watching others dance, the musical interaction is beneficial. “It reminds me of a lot of things I used to do,“ said resident Shirley Friedman, “and it brings back a lot of memories.”
Our Music Festival provides a great time to visit Parc Provence, with opportunities to see our residents shine. Check out our schedule of festival highlights here.
