Music and Memory

Music and Memory

Dementia can feel like a roller coaster ride. There are high peaks and low points, nervous feelings about what could be ahead and even sometimes having the urge to scream. Over five million Americans suffer from dementia daily. Some common symptoms of dementia can include memory loss, confusion, short attention span, lack of motivation, and depression.

Westhills Health Care has recently undergone certification to begin our Music and Memory Program. Music and Memory is a non-profit organization that uses music therapy to stimulate the minds of those trapped in the confines of dementia. The organization’s mission is to provide access to music and to educate communities about music therapy and the benefits it can have. The hope is to give personalized therapeutic music to improve standard of living and care within the health care industry.

iPods are being prepared for residents to listen to music that they love. Westhills is eager to see the results from integrating this program within our Health Care Community. There have been some amazing benefits with participants of this program. We are hoping to unlock closed minds by introducing music to our residents.
