We have all heard the saying music is good for the soul. Well, at McCoy we truly believe that to be true. We offer clients one hour of music therapy a week in addition to the music during devotion. Also, we are participating in the music and memory program. We offer each of our clients their own personalized ipod to enjoy the much of their liking.
Each week clients have a one hour drum therapy session with Walker Wright of Rejoicing Rhythms.
Not only is the soothing sounds of the different drums beneficial to the clients this is just plain fun!
