Bringing Music to People with Alzheimer’s
Music at Last Society brings the joy of music to people with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.
Listening to music or singing songs can trigger positive emotions beneficial to patients. For example, it can help to relieve stress, reduce anxiety, depression, and agitation.
Although memory and cognitive skills in people with dementia increasingly decline as the disease progresses, research suggests that key areas of the brain linked with musical memory seem to remain relatively undamaged.
A complimentary digital music device (iPod or MP3 player) with the music of your choice will be provided at no cost to the individual, caregiver or family.
Music not only benefits patients, it can also provide a great way for caregivers and families to connect to loved ones.
