This fall, we at Sterling Presbyterian Manor have fallen under the musical spell of our all-time favorite tunes! We have diligently worked to expand our Music and Memory program by providing residents with iPod Shuffles filled with songs that promote pleasant memories of their lives. Our goal is to have each resident with their very own iPod and lineup of favorite music.
We currently fall short of enough players and are accepting donations of gently used iPods and speakers, but we will not fall to pieces over minor details. Around here we all still enjoy listening to cassette tapes, compact discs, the live piano playing by our Sterling College Work Study student Angela. We also enjoy musical performances from outside groups, like our most recent appearance by the Wrinkle Box Players, a crowd-pleasing favorite of accordion-playing ladies from Hutchinson. Having multiple avenues of providing music helps us reach the maximum level of residents and helps us all to spend time falling back in love with music.
