Music and Memory Program
At Comprehensive Care Center, we offer the Music and Memory program, which alleviates symptoms for people living with dementia to feel joyful and communicate again. The program has helped to reduce falls, delirium, and pain while reducing reliance on mood-altering medications.
Our Music and Memory program was created to improve the quality of life of our residents who are living with dementia. Our residents who participate in this program report feeling more joyful and note an improvement in their communication skills. The program has also helped reduce falls, delivering pain, all while reducing reliance on mood-altering medications.
How It Works
Music stimulates the brain, and studies have demonstrated that music enhances the memory of both Alzheimer's and non-Alzheimer’s dementia patients. We use personalized playlists to offer our residents a practical, non-pharmacological way to improve their daily quality of life. Our personalized music program can strengthen cognition, improve family visits, and boost spirits, all while decreasing pain. Unlike prescription medication, music also has precious few side effects.
Our Music and Memory Program staff has received certified training that enables them to create, provide, and manage personalized playlists for residents living with Alzheimer's disease, non-Alzheimer’s dementia, and other cognitive and physical challenges. These playlists can help them reconnect with the world through music-inspired memories.
