Take a look inside a music therapy session at the Veterans Centre

June 8, 2020

Residents of our Veterans Centre recently joined music therapist Trish MacAulay for a hopeful, modern take on a classic Vera Lynn song.

Although visitors are currently restricted to ensure the safety of our residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, our veterans continue to enjoy opportunities for social interaction, physical activity and engagement through unit-based programs and therapy services.

Through engagement in music, horticulture and the arts, creative arts therapies have been shown to improve the well-being and quality of life of our residents.

To reduce risks, these activities are held in small groups, while ensuring proper physical distancing and frequent hand cleaning.

Sunnybrook is home to 375 veterans from the Second World War and Korean War. We are proud and consider it an honour to care for Canada's veterans.
