Music Therapy: A Key to Unlocking Memories
The Wall Street Journal ran an article, “A Key for Unlocking Memories” that detailed music therapy for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients through the use of MP3 players. This story talks about the various therapy’s available and profiles the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function. The Institute has a “Top 10s For Loved Ones With Memory Impairments”. The list includes top 10s from the 40s, 50, 60s, R&B, Spanish, Country and Spiritual hits.
Prior to your next visit to a loved one under our care at any Spring Arbor Alzheimer’s Care Center , why not load your MP3 with some music you know they once held dear. Take time to share a brief journey down memory lane….and let them do the driving.
