Oakwood’s Spotify Holiday Playlist

Whether you’re a fan of Christmas caroling or prefer singing alone to yourself, a love of music is something that links us all together. While your loved one may be experiencing difficulties with memory or communication, one thing still remains, and that is the priceless moments of joy sparked by listening to familiar tunes from their past.

At Oakwood Creative Care, we find that a wide range of musical experiences can be designed to stimulate emotion and memories. In many cases, musical therapy has proven to be so effective that people who have lost their ability to speak, suddenly recall a favorite song and sing along with the tune.

In wanting to bring some holiday joy right to you and your loved one’s home, we have created a Spotify Holiday Playlist packed full with some of the greatest hits of the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s from musical legends, such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, Brenda Lee, and more!

With over an hour’s worth of musical medleys, you can use this playlist at any time of the day, as many times as you want, to offer a therapeutic opportunity for connectivity and joyful engagement with your loved one during the holiday season. 

We hope you and your loved ones enjoy Oakwood’s Spotify Holiday Playlist:
