Music Therapy and Dementia

  • Maplewood Community Center 31735 Maplewood Street Garden City, MI, 48135 United States (map)

The area of the brain that deals with music is the last to be touched by dementia. Therefore, music can be used to reach people profoundly affected by dementia. This session will teach you how to use music to stimulate memories in your loved one. We will watch clips of dementia patients coming “alive” when presented with their favorite music. We will demonstrate personal music devices that are available for this purpose.
