“The Mindful Music program was inspired by the program ‘Music and Memories’ and the documentary ‘Alive Inside’.

The Mindful Music program is designed to provide personalized music intervention to stimulate the client’s memory, provide meaningful engagement through auditory stimulation, and support self-expression and identity. The playlist is designed based on the client’s current and past musical interests with the input of not only the client, but caregivers and care partners as well.

Using music intervention, we can provide an immediate improvement in quality of life for people living with dementia.

Alzheimer Society staff as well as volunteers, family members, and care partners assist in providing the music sessions using the iPod Shuffle and comfortable headphones.” Source:
