Adopt a Singer is a program where Adam Price (an interactive seniors entertainer) goes into aged care facilities, hospital geriatric and palliative care wards and gives joy and happiness to lonely, scared or otherwise lost souls.
The project has been going for some time now, but it's become apparent that quite a few aged care facilities just don't have the entertainment budgets to pay for professional entertainment which brings their residents joy and happiness.
The other part of Adams project is that he's on call to visit seniors and perform when they become too ill to get out of their room, or go to hospital or into palliative care.
With this grant money, Adam intends on performing for residents who otherwise couldn't afford it, and to look into increasing his reach through training others.
