Drum circles are not only used in other countries? They are also used in America to bring a group of people together. A drum circle are used as a form of drum therapy which is group drumming with specific benefits for the corporate, health and social care, education and community sectors. Drum therapy is particularly beneficial with Alzheimer residents. Since drumming can be like the sound of a heartbeat, it brings back the earliest memory we had, in the womb, which evokes the memory of a familiar, peaceful state. All you need to have a drum circle or drum therapy session at your Assisted Living Facility is a large drum, or one for each person (you could consider making these with the residents) and someone to lead the circle.
