Merrymakers Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to brightening the lives of seniors and elderly through music and laughter. Merrymakers provides live, musical performances to over 100 area senior living facilities. Each care center receives a monthly visit from Merrymakers, at no cost to the facilities. Hands clap, toes tap, and sleepy eyes twinkle, at a Merrymakers’ performance. Residents enjoy an opportunity to move to music that sparks a happy memory.
Music is often used with elders to increase levels of physical, emotional and mental functioning. The sensory and intellectual stimulation of music can help maintain or improve a persons’ quality of life. Merrymakers provides a variety of quality performances to address the musical preferences of all seniors.
