Dementia Patients Aided By Music

by Richard Kuehn on 09/26/16

Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia is a terrible condition, robbing you of memories and the people that you love.  Researchers have found that one way to ease the pain is with music.  Dan Cohen started an organization called Music & Memory (see www.musicandmemory.org) which can help a loved one connect with the world by bringing personalized music into their lives.  The non-profit uses volunteers to bring digital music to the elderly to improve their quality of life.  One man could barely speak and literally came alive after they started playing music that he loved.  What a wonderful contribution to his quality of life.  If you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend the documentary “Alive Inside.”
