Reap the Benefits of Music

November 27 10:00am

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have found that listening to or singing music can provide emotional and behavioral benefits for people with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. The team also noted that musical memories are often preserved in Alzheimer's disease because key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged by the disease. Each week, classically trained, professional singers from “Songs by Heart”, a nonprofit organization, engage with residents. The talented performers interact with residents by singing songs they like and remember. In addition to forming bonds through live music, the program has been recognized for creating the opportunity for residents with memory care to access memories and functionality in a different, joyful way.
