Mile High Magazine 01/31/2021 Music and Memory

Guest: Connie M. Tomaino, DA, LCAT, MT-BC Research showed people with Alzheimer’s and dementia responded very well to songs they remembered and were important to them.  The purpose of Music and Memory was to make personalized playlist available and to train the staff to use these programs with patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia.  This should be done every day for short periods at time; it is also useful when some is showing signs of agitation to help calm them.  People also need to realize that while music can be good, some songs can bring up a negative memory.  https://musicandmemory.org/
