Songs for Seniors

The Songs for Seniors program within A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab's Music Therapy Department promotes the incorporation of music into many areas of the day including rehabilitation therapy, organized leisure-time activities and personal time.

For nearly 115 years, A.G. Rhodes has provided high-quality health care to seniors in metro Atlanta. With three nursing homes located in Fulton, DeKalb and Cobb counties, A.G. Rhodes serves more than 1,100 seniors each year for both short-term and long-term care.

 

A.G. Rhodes offers some of the most distinctive programming available, including our popular Songs for Seniors program within the Music Therapy Department. Songs for Seniors promotes the incorporation of music into many areas of the day. A key component of the program is the use of iPods with songs tailored for individual residents to enjoy.
