John attends Day Respite at the Centre twice a week, one of his favourite activities is taking part in the music sessions. John has a keen interest in music, especially country as he used to enjoy taking part in line dancing. John plays along to various songs that he enjoys with a variety of percussion instruments. John benefits from this in different ways. Actively playing or shaking percussion instruments to the beat helps with body co-ordination and synchronization. It is also a form of exercise which helps hands and arm muscles, as well as being a joyful and uplifting experience for John. John also enjoys spending time on the exercise bike, which helps his general body circulation and exercises his muscles. John often feels brighter and better able in general after taking part in the Friday sessions in the gym.
