Intergenerational Musical Memories Pilot Project


The Intergenerational Musical Memories Pilot Project was developed and trialled in the first year of Council’s age-friendly journey to address the domain of Respect and Social Inclusion.

The project used music to bring together one generation within an aged care facility that was experiencing some memory loss and another that were disenfranchised from mainstream society. Through music, both generations were able to connect, grow and learn that age is no barrier to building relationships.

The Active & Healthy Ageing Initiative partnered with Swinburne University’s VCAL program and Homestyle Aged Care Ferndale Gardens to trial a new program under the age-friendly domain of Respect & Social Inclusion.

The trial phase of the project has now been completed and below is a video that outlines the program and the great outcomes it achieved.
