Music and Social club

Music therapy is an evidence-based, non-pharmacological intervention for people with HD (pwHD): Research shows that pwHD are responsive to music stimulation; have a high demand for emotional expression and maintenance of a social relationship; and that music therapy interventions improve the quality of life for pwHD, in the dimensions of physical, mental, emotional and social functioning.

Unfortunately this program has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will revisit the program when 70% of the NSW/ACT population are vaccinated against COVID-19.

‘My Voice’ Art club

The philosophy of this art program is phenomenological in nature; promoting the development of self-awareness. The art experience allows a creative response which is unique to the person participating.

Art provides a forum for memory and an opportunity to exercise the hands. Members enjoy the calmness of creativity, as the hand liaises for the brain, finding context in memory and offering periods of self-control. In addition, members enjoy the pleasure of friendship and a renewed sense of well-being.

Unfortunately this program has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will revisit the program when 70% of the NSW/ACT population are vaccinated against COVID-19.

Through art people with HD can be given a new voice.
