“After our Mardi Gras party, we transitioned right into a spontaneous SingFit session. Residents and their families were dancing and singing – everyone was having an amazing time."

— PJ Koshi - Life Enrichment Director at Aegis Callahan House 


“Residents who are usually not interactive are singing and following along. Thanks for a great program! You and your staff are changing lives.”

— Kristin Purcha - Program Services Director at Villa Valencia, 5 STAR 


“Our residents love SingFit. The residents not only love the music, but also show favor towards the shakers and scarves as well. I end up extending SingFit longer than planned. It is amazing to watch the residents become involved – I love SingFit!”

— Vanessa King Love - Life Enrichment Director at Aegis of Northgate 

“Some residents who hardly talk sing along to songs with SingFit. I have also found that if a resident is agitated, SingFit can calm them.”

— Chris Saario - Memory Care Life Enrichment Director at Aegis of Marymoor 


“A room bound resident joined the SingFit session yesterday and made me very happy – this was such a positive from SingFit.”

— Donna George, Director of Programming at Front Porch - Claremont Manor 


“Our nurses said we have a whole group of participants that they need to give medications in order to control their anxieties and their aggressiveness, and as long as they participate in the SingFit sessions, they no longer need the medication.”

— Inna Berger, President, CEO and Co-Founder Oxnard Family Circle 


“From the first song—right—you’re seeing the engagement, and it keeps building…and as they walk out, they’re all talking to each other. They’re very social and they’re talking about the songs that they love. They walk out of the room actually still singing.”

— Pam Markovich, Activities Director, Aegis Dana Point, CA 


“An effective, low-cost solution to dementia care.”

— Kari Olsen, VP Innovation, Front Porch Senior Living

— Katy Krul, Director of Operations, Oxnard Family Circle 


“Some people who have really limited social skills have been interacting with one another…as you can see with the group, some of them are holding hands.”

— Maria Owens, Medical Social Worker, Oxnard Family Circle 


“The energy shifts when everybody is singing. And some of them can’t have verbal communication, but they’ll tap their feet…and in a way they’re all participating in something. The mood shifts when there’s music.”

— Teresa Alonso, Certified Nurse Assistant, Oxnard Family Circle 

“I think SingFit is really clever. I love it. Singing makes you feel alive. Sometimes you are the only one left in your family and you are lonely. Music fixes that. It really does.”

— Betts Hall, age 87, former Hollenbeck Palms Activity Director and SingFit PRIME singer


“As a physician, I wholeheartedly recommend singing with SingFit PRIME as a way to improve the health and wellness of seniors through active engagement in music.”

— Dr. Geraldine Brach, M.D., age 104, retired family-planning doctor, public-health official and SingFit PRIME singer 


“I just feel good all over when I sing. I would recommend SingFit because it is such a good feeling to sing together.”

— Rosemary Jewel, age 90, retired ballroom dancer and SingFit PRIME singer 

“SingFit has positively affected our program. It has been transformative. There was an unmet need for our lower functioning folks. There aren’t other programs that offer this caliber of music program. Because they are singing the songs in its entirety, there’s a sense of accomplishment. It builds their confidence.”

— Sara Kaye, Director at OPICA Adult Day Care in Santa Monica, CA


“We’ve chosen people to come in because they have difficulty communicating and joining the main groups. As the sessions have progressed, they have become more involved and it brings out their character. It promotes a joyful, shared experience.”

— Daniel O’Connell, Social Work Intern, OPICA Adult Day Care in Santa Monica, CA 


“I’d like PRIME sessions to take place all the time, as often as we can have them. The music is from our time. It makes people happier. You see the smile on their faces. I would recommend it to anybody. The lyrics being spoken to us are out of this world.”

— Irving Shortage 99, retired china and porcelain painter and SingFit PRIME singer


“I do believe that singing together is a social event. Without even being aware of it, many benefits come such as fun, friendships, social skills, opportunities to express emotion, show off or be recognized for abilities. Singing brings self-confidence; helps with stress release, concentration and focus; and helps with short- and long-term memory recall.”

— Dennis Hiebert, Hollenbeck Palms Activities Coordinator
