Bringing joy and a sense of achievement to the care home through shared creativity

Jam Today

Let's Get Jamming

We create training and resources to empower care staff to get fun, engaging and inclusive jamming experiences happening in the care home.  We're on a mission to get everyone jamming together with music.  We provide a jamming kit including an online course and downloadable audio tracks and video to jam along with.

Jamming is playing together and responding to what each person brings to the session. It's a way of working creatively together that is: respectful, social, accessible, inclusive and fun

Anyone can do this and there's a way for everyone to join in.

The Jamming Approach

A jamming approach is central to the work we do. Jamming is about creating things together and playfully making it up as you go along. We make sure that there's lots of ways for people to join in and be an active part of the jamming experience. We find this jamming approach to be engaging, stimulating and enjoyable to a wide range of people, including people living with dementia.
