ABOUT THE MUSIC & MEMORY® PROJECT
Neuroscience supports the theory that music is good for the brain as well as the soul. Research indicates that musical memory endures in dementia and Alzheimer’s patients, even when other brain functions have diminished. Through personalized playlists for each individual, music will give back happy and meaningful moments to residents who suffer from these diseases.
Music will be deeply satisfying and beneficial to those who do not suffer from dementia as well. Plus, we anticipate that the favorite tunes will reduce the need for medications and encourage residents to eat more.
The Music & Memory® Project raised over $2,700 at the recent Lunar New Year Celebration.
