The Miracle of Music

Dementia patients find themselves, through music. Utilizing music to increase the quality of life for dementia and Alzheimer's patients.

Millions of people and caregivers suffer from the effects of Alzheimer's disease, and music has been proven to ease that suffering.

Where medications have failed, music has succeeded. Music helps not just those with the disease. It helps their families, caregivers, and friends. It helps anyone who has loved someone who has forgotten who they are. We are true believers in the MUSIC & MEMORY℠ program and what it does to bring personalized music to senior living communities across the country. This program introduces a way to bring music into the lives of people, specifically those with Alzheimer's or dementia.

Playing personalized music is therapeutic and has been linked to slowing memory loss, increasing recognition and recollection, and improving the lifestyles of residents using the program.

The power of music is real and you can see for yourself the power of it in the documentary Alive Inside, which was ignited by the clip of Henry.

This has motivated us and so many others around the country to bring this miracle to our residents and families in need.

This is important to us as we know the struggles workers, residents, and families have to endure in dealing with Alzheimer's and dementia. We have witnessed firsthand the power this program has and the affect it has on those we care for.

Music can directly improve the lives, minds, and health of thousands of people.

We have all heard of Alzheimer's disease, but for those of who have witnessed it or lived it, the soul-crushing power this disease has over our lives is insurmountable.

  • Help ease the suffering caused by an epidemic bigger than you have imagined
  • Improve the quality of life for our residents
  • Improve peace-of-mind for the families of our residents
  • Reduce stress for our caregivers
  • Bring smiles, singing, and head nodding to our hallways
  • Bring life to those who feel lost
  • Spread love, life, and beauty

A Risk Worth Taking

We understand that some may not be aware of the traumatic effects of dementia or Alzheimer's, and if they do, may not believe in the power that music possesses.

Through our joint partnership with MUSIC & MEMORY℠ we are certified and qualified to bring this program to our friends in need. This isn't based on hope or opinion; there is science here…
