Sunrise Senior Living is using therapeutic music technology SingFit™ in order to increase residents’ well-being.

Created by Musical Health Technologies, SingFit Prime uses songs and evidence-based music programming as a way to help residents engage their mind and body. SingFit has a lyric-cuing feature that allows individuals with memory or vision loss to interact with their favorite songs.

“We’re constantly looking at ways to innovate and enhance our already robust evidence-based Sunrise Live With Purpose® programming, and our residents and team members are pleased to have even more options for meaningful musical engagement,” said Rita Altman, senior vice president of Memory Care & Program Services for Sunrise. “SingFit’s therapeutic music sessions are especially helpful in the support we provide to residents living in our memory care neighborhoods, by offering both cognitive and physical stimulation that engages the body, mind, and spirit.”

Sunrise first introduced SingFit in a community in 2017 and now has more than 260 of its communities using the program. The SingFit app features more than 400 songs. Residents are led through a series of interactive singing sessions as often as three or more times per week.®
