Music and Culture in Care is an event for activities coordinators, care teams and providers employed in residential settings, nursing homes and day centres across Wales, who are running activities for older people. The purpose of the event is to celebrate delegates’ achievements and thank them for the hard work that they have put in over the last few years.
Counts towards CPD
There will be Welsh Language and BSL Interpreters present throughout.
The day will include: live music from LMN; practical training activities and resources to grow the use of live music and creative and cultural activities in care; afternoon tea and cake; a good lunch; and a chance to look around the Museum.
We are delighted to say that we will be joined by the Deputy Minister for Social Services, Julie Morgan MS, and Heléna Herklots, the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales. There will also be a contribution from the National Activities Providers Association.
