Can choirs reduce social isolation, increase quality of life and reduce caregive burden? Singing in a choir is a joyful and emotional experience that promotes social connections, and has positive outcomes that include improved mood, increased energy, reduced stress, increased self-esteem and confidence. In this session, UVic researchers and a professional choir conductor discuss the design and implementation of an intergenerational choir involving high school students, people with dementia and their family caregivers. The session will end with a short demonstration of the positive affect and social connections that come from singing together!
