Harmony Superstar

Many people tune in on a weekly basis to watch shows like “The Voice” or “American Idol” where talent from all over the US unite to win the ultimate title of being the next singing sensation.  All these people have one thing in common. They all want to be a Super Star!

Singing is just something everyone likes to do.  It is proven that singing aloud naturally makes you feel better.  I’ve tried it myself.  There have been times when I was feeling a little under the weather and just began singing along to one of my favorite songs in the car, and have felt significantly better.

Music is such a powerful thing.  Music has the power to change your mood, and here at Harmony we have adopted this concept. We put it to the test on a weekly basis.  We have noticed significant change in attitude, and outlook of our participants.  Instantly; one participant comes to mind. She joined our center with a diagnosis of chronic depression, and now she spends her days here with us dancing and singing to her favorite bachata songs.

On a weekly basis we have karaoke, and everybody loves it. Here we treat you like the superstar you really are. Sing anything from Anthony Santos to Smokey Robinson.  We have any and every song you may want to sing along to.  Maybe singing isn’t for you unless it is in the shower; our sound system and room acoustics will give you the reverb and tone that can make even a bad singer sound like Diana Ross.  The best thing about karaoke is that it’s just plain fun, and even more fun when done in a group.

Perhaps this sounds like something that you would like for yourself or a loved one.  Spending too much time at home isn’t good for anyone.  Mental and physical stimulus is very important to overall health.  At Harmony at 154th we help you stay active and independent longer. We also keep you healthy longer through fun and interactive activities.

If you want to try us out before making your decision you definitely can. We offer free one day passes to the center where you can enjoy different activities and rooms such as the cyber room, or relax room.  We provide free door to door transportation so call us today and speak with David  to set up a day to visit.  You won’t regret it. See you soon.

At Harmony Social Adult Day Care, we believe everyone’s health is important, which is why we have all of our Certified Home Health Aides, Personal Care Aides, and staff trained efficiently, so that you or your loved ones are getting the right health professionals providing safe care at our facility.

Caroling in perfect Harmony

In my 30 years of life I have only gone caroling once for the holidays.  I was maybe 11 or 12 when my church group decided to go door to door singing Christmas classics. We started by visiting people we knew and worked our way to the homes of strangers.  There are two things I remember about that day one I was cold and two I was embarrassed.  After all I was obliged to participate.  All my friends were going and I didn’t want them to look at me like a Debbie downer.  Caroling is something that is no longer seen; at least not in the metropolis known as New York City.  The truth is that the times are bad and going door to door isn’t advised.  Back in the 90’s we were with a large group of people under much supervision.

Caroling began back in the 19th century, and its original intent was not confined to Christmas songs alone.  Caroling involved a group of people going door to door at anytime of the year to sing to the residents of that town.  In spite of being frozen and a little embarrassed on the day that I went; I was overtaken by two things, and that was the joy that we evidently brought to the families we visited and that we all sang in perfect Harmony although we weren’t all singers.

At our center Harmony Social Adult Day Care Bronx, we are keeping this tradition alive by singing along to your favorite Christmas songs.  One of the many things we do here at Harmony is sing-alongs/karaoke.  I can honestly say that sing alongs and karaoke is one of our participant’s favorites.  Studies prove that singing aloud naturally changes your mood by making you happier.  Try it! Next time you’re feeling down or if you’re upset.  Personally it has worked for me.  Harmony at 154th street’s goal is to keep you happy and healthy.  We are sure that singing along to one of your favorite songs will drastically improve your mood.  Staying home, enclosed within 4 walls is not going to make anything better.  Come to Harmony and socialize with people that are just like you.  Just like my friends, and me we weren’t all singers, but we all sang in perfect harmony on that night.  Our participants are from different walks of life but when we come together it’s perfect.  Harmony at 154th is proud to say that we are more than just another center… We are your family away from home.  Whether you’re a singer or not; there is an activity for anything you fancy to drastically change your outlook on life.

Join us today, and be part of a growing community that refuses to succumb to inactivity, lethargy, depression, and hopelessness.  Be part of a community that holds on to independence, longevity, laughter, and good times.  That community is Harmony Social Adult Day Care.
