Music and Memory Grant

 

The Ohio Department of Aging and the Office of the State Long-term Care Ombudsman,

has awarded Pleasantview Care center a Music and Memory Grant.

Grandma always perks up when I add a song that she remembers from when I was growing up. It makes me happy that I can still connect with her in some small way.

Imagine being trapped inside your own body with your connections to memories and people you hold dear muddled, confused or inaccessible. For many Ohioans with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, this is their world.

Now, imagine that something as simple as a beloved song could change that - even if just for a moment.

Hearing a popular song from our teen years, a chant from a religious service or a familiar tune can be profoundly linked to personal memories. In fact, our brains are hard-wired to connect with long term memory - and this is no different for persons with severe dementia.

Reaching a resident with advanced dementia can often be difficult. With Music and Memory, our staff creates and provides personalized playlists on digital music players for residents, allowing them to reconnect with the world through memories triggered by the music they love.

 

If you would like to support the Music and Memory Program

at Pleasantview Care Center, please contact:

Kris Leonard, Director of Activities and Volunteers at 440-887-4236

We can use donated iPods, iTunes gift cards and volunteers to make the program an ongoing success. Kris would be super happy to provide more details about the program.

Over the past several months our music therapist, Lindsey Perl, MT-BC and activities staff member Kelly Pitman, ADC have participated in Music and Memory training sessions sponsored by the Ohio Department of Aging. They have both received certification of their training.

We have already received grant provided equipment for the program, including headsets and  iPods to launch this program for our residents with dementia - but we can always use more equipment and volunteers.
