- Wishing Well
The Wishing Well, Music in Healthcare programme enables us to bring participatory music making directly to hospital bedsides, creating meaningful interactions to improve the wellbeing of children, young people and older people with dementia in hospitals and hospices. We support well-being in healthcare by creating environments that make people feel safe and by encouraging a healthcare culture that helps staff interact with the person, as well as treating the health condition. We support the whole community around the patient, including families, caregivers and staff in interactions and aim to improve the overall sound ecology of hospital wards.
