The importance of music for individuals with diverse abilities

August 15, 2023

The profound impact of music on our well-being is undeniable. It occupies a special place in various moments of our lives, from weddings and first dates to road trips with friends. Certain melodies evoke positive memories, bringing lasting joy.

Individuals with diverse abilities are no exception to this, which is why Edmonton's Winnifred Steward incorporates music into many of its programs.

Cubeit takes immense pride in the assistance provided by our sister company, Sentinel Storage, to the Winnifred Steward music room. This dedicated space enables Winnifred Steward to better cater to the individuals who depend on their support.

For 70 years, Winnifred Stewart has empowered countless individuals with diverse abilities, guiding them to explore their aspirations and dreams through programs like those offered in the music room.

Music programming offers numerous benefits to individuals with diverse abilities, both physically and emotionally. It can lead to changes in heart rate, reduced blood pressure, and improved breathing rates. When dance is incorporated, it further enhances motor development and overall physical fitness, resulting in improved sleep and reduced pain. On an emotional level, music has been clinically proven to alleviate depression, feelings of loneliness, and anxiety. It also serves as an excellent therapeutic tool for individuals experiencing dementia, Alzheimer's Disease, and other memory disorders, effectively countering their effects.

Moreover, music fosters social interaction and brings joy to people, a vital aspect often overlooked when designing programs for individuals with diverse abilities. The music programs provided by Winnifred Steward underscore the organization's remarkable work in Edmonton and Northern Alberta. Cubeit is honored to collaborate with them in this noble endeavor.

Looking ahead, we eagerly anticipate the continuation of our partnership with Winnifred Steward and participating in the 2023 Joey Moss Memorial Golf Classic on September 18 at the Quarry Golf Course.
