Sing Ireland and Creative Ageing International have come together, with support from The Creative Ireland Programme, to create a range of resources that will encourage and explore singing into older age.

Each of their guidebooks provides information, expert advice, recommendations, case studies and resources to assist with the process of setting up and running a singing group for older people.

This fourth guidebook in the series discusses singing in healthcare settings and is particularly focused on sharing the experiences of groups led by nursing staff and care staff who sing and share their singing with those in their care.

Sing Ireland is the national development agency for group singing in Ireland. Creative Ageing International celebrates ageing.
