Music & Memory is all about bringing joy into the lives of people suffering from Alzheimer's, other forms of dementia, and a wide range of cognitive any physical impairments.
Robert Lee Care Center is one of the few facilities actively offering this program in the Concho Valley and most of the Big Country.
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. At MUSIC & MEMORY℠, we help 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.
Our approach is simple, elegant and effective: We train care professionals 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
