No one wants to end up alone and isolated in a nursing home. It’s hard enough to lose someone you love to Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. It’s terrifying to think you could end up there yourself, someday.
But there’s reason to hope for a better life as we age. MUSIC & MEMORY℠, helps people in nursing homes and other care organizations who suffer from a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges to find renewed meaning and connection in their lives through the gift of personalized music.
Beloved Music Can Renew Lives Lost to Dementia
The approach is simple, elegant and effective: Care professionals are trained how to set up personalized music playlists, delivered on iPods and other digital devices, for those in their care. These musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can bring participants back to life, enabling them to feel like themselves again, to converse, socialize and stay present.
Music & Memory’s work is rooted in extensive neuroscience research. The results can be nothing short of miraculous.

The ongoing research and evaluation of Music & Memory's work in care organizations shows consistent results:

When you are listening to music you
forget about problems, you forget about loneliness, you forget about depression, things like that.
