Go Caroling

The holidays are fast approaching and nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit like carols.  Whether you choose to go door to door spreading holiday cheer to your friends and neighbors…

 

(extra points if you dress like this)

 or stay snug in the comfort of you own home, caroling is fun all ages and ability levels. 

Even people with very limited abilities to talk often retain the ability to sing.  This is because “automatic” phrases, such as song lyrics, are stored and retrieved differently than individual words.  Therefore, familiar songs, like Christmas Carols, are a great way to stimulate the brain.  You might even find that if you sing the same song a few times in a row, the person with significant memory loss with remember more and more lyrics each time!
