Help spread the music and give new life to someone!!
**MUSIC & MEMORY℠ is a non-profit organization that brings personalized music into the lives of the elderly or infirm through digital music technology, vastly improving quality of life.
We train nursing home staff and other elder care professionals, as well as family caregivers, how to create and provide personalized playlists using iPods and related digital audio systems that enable those struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories.
By providing access and education, and by creating a network of MUSIC & MEMORY℠ Certified elder care facilities, we aim to make this form of personalized therapeutic music a standard of care throughout the health care industry.**
This is an amazing program which offers " the therapeutic benefits of personalized music" to Seniors with Dementia or Alzheimer's. This program is gradually being introduced to Canadian facilities and we are in the process of learning more, arranging for training and looking at implementing it in local Long term care facilities and Seniors' Residences. We already have facilities and residences interested in becoming involved. Our first step is to reach out to the community with a request for donations of gently used iPods and some fundraising to cover costs. This campaign may begin in earnest in Spring 2015 and more information will be posted on our 'News' page and through social media.
