The Power of Music

Music can allow a person living with dementia to rediscover pleasure in the world. Alzheimer Society Music Project was created in response to overwhelming evidence showing the beneficial effects of music and stimulation on people living with dementia.

Through the Alzheimer Society Music Project, personalized mp3 players are provided to support a person living with dementia and improve their quality of life.

The Alzheimer Society Music Project is available to families at no cost upon approval.

Personalized music has the power to:

  • act as a conduit of memory
  • improve cognition and communication
  • improve mood
  • produce other desirable forms of interaction

Although each individual’s response to personalized music is unique, chances are that they will benefit from an enhanced quality of life, and that you and the person with dementia will gain a peaceful, relaxing way to renew your relationship. Click here for more information.
