The National Health Service (NHS) of the United Kingdom has already accepted that therapeutic music is now best-in-class care for older adults with cognitive decline and mental health challenges, and it is also the most cost-effective. We are incredibly grateful to have been taken under the wing of The Yorkshire Humber Academic Health and Science Network, the research and development arm of the NHS, to bring the benefits of SingFit to older adults and their families in the United Kingdom.
Our CEO, Rachel Francine, recently was invited to speak at the Leeds Digital Festival's Nexus Connect event which highlighted innovative ways to integrate digital solutions into the NHS. While in Yorkshire, Rachel got to join with talented, passionate individuals from the NHS, the Leeds City Council, and the University of Sheffield on “Team Sabrina” at the Hack for Good event, to create new ideas on how to improve the health and happiness of older adults across the Yorkshire region (and the world). While it’s not really the point, we can’t help but mention that “Team Sabrina” won the “Best Design” award. Stay tuned for more information on the benefits and cost-effectiveness of music as medicine.
