Music & Memory

Eureka!!!  Truly one of those “why didn’t I think of that before?” moments…  Excellent article on National Public Radio website:  For Elders With Dementia, Musical Awakenings.  I cannot wait to make an iPod playlist for my music-loving dad!!!

    • Henry reminds me so much of my dad, the body language and his way of talking. The change music brought to Henry was fantastic!

    • It’s great to know that music can make such a difference in the lives of elderly ones suffering from dementia – I do wish I had known about this sooner, but I’m looking forward to seeing Dad’s reaction to using an iPod!

    • Kathy, I wonder, is Barry listening to music as he recovers from the knee replacement? I used to love falling asleep listening to Dad playing the piano or his guitar…

I'm curious to know your thoughts...
