We Blush – The Testimonials
“Transformational” and “much more than a sing-along” — that’s what the staff at OPICA Senior Daycare says (on video no less) about SingFit Silver & Gold™.

What We Do – Why We Do It
Almost everyone who works with seniors has a story to tell about music bringing a particular client “to life.” SingFit Silver & Gold™ systematizes this process of transformational musical experiences so that they can take place in assisted living, skilled nursing and senior daycare facilities every day of the week.
Distributed via affordable iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone app hardware and accessories, SingFit assisted singing can also easily take place in homecare environments. SingFit’s catalog of songs features smash hits from the past 100 years ranging from “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” to “Get Up Stand Up” to “Hella’ Good,” making it the perfect intergenerational activity (and awesome content for home videos!).
SingFit utilizes a patented, audio Lyric Coach™ system, not written lyrics, so almost everyone (including people with no vision and/or low literacy) can sing the words of a song spontaneously, accurately and, most importantly, joyously.
For facilities and organizations catering to the care, entertainment and education of seniors, access to Silver & Gold™ programming means Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, and Nat King Cole become their partners providing high quality, engaging services for their constituents.
We are a determined band of warriors that include music therapists, researchers, coders, educators, recording engineers, designers, business types and Grammy winning artists, all focused on creating transformative musical experiences for millions of seniors of all ages and abilities. Join us.
The Nitty Gritty – Why SingFit Silver & Gold™ Works
Silver & Gold sessions are held in small group, one-on-one and large glee club settings, depending on population, staffing and organizational goals. Sessions can be led by existing in-house staff or contractors who attend online and real world SingFit education and feedback sessions to ensure quality care.
SingFit Silver & Gold™ programming features some of the most iconic songs of all time, including the still in heavy rotation “Lean on Me”, “Crazy” and “Blue Velvet.” Songs like these are deeply embedded in the memories of most seniors and the 10,000 people a day who will be turning 65 for the next 15 years. Silver & Gold™ programming for groups was designed by certified music therapists as a reminiscence tool. The singing, trivia, social interaction and movement that make up Silver & Gold™ sessions can spark memories that help bring even the most reluctant clients out of their shells to enjoy life and engage in their own care.
