Music & Memory


(Free Program)


Grounded in extensive neuroscience research about how our brains respond to music, we encourage and assist local nursing home facilities to become a MUSIC & MEMORY certified care facility. Elder care professionals are trained to set up personalized music playlists, delivered on iPods for those in their care. These musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can "quickin" residents and clients, enabling them to feel like themselves again, to converse, socialize and stay present.

"When you are listening to music you forget about problems, you forget about loneliness, you forget about depression, and things like that"--A. Morales, Nursing Home Resident
