DIABLO VALLEY FOUNDATION FOR THE AGING

According to Mayo Clinic, research suggests that listening to or singing songs can provide emotional and behavioral benefits for people with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. Musical memories are often preserved in Alzheimer's disease because key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged by the disease. For example, music can:

  • Relieve stress
  • Reduce anxiety and depression
  • Reduce agitation

Valley Oak Respite Center is a program offered by Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging, providing fun, creative, and engaging activities for seniors living with Alzheimers and dementia. DVFA is seeking musicians to provide live music experiences for these wonderful seniors. Songs from the 40’s and 50’s or classic oldies that resonate with folks over age 65 are preferred. This program is offered weekdays from 10:30 to 2:30, and the music portion is presented at 11 a.m.

Mission Statement

Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging's mission is to provide compassionate services to help seniors maintain independence, dignity and peace of mind.

Description

Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging is a not-for-profit corporation providing community service to seniors in Contra Costa County since 1975. Founded by a group of community leaders including Dean S. Lesher, former publisher of the Contra Costa Times, and Katharine M. Grant, a social worker, the Foundation is committed to providing vital services to aging persons who are at risk because they are alone, isolated, pressed by financial problems, or are confused. The focus of our organization is to prevent inappropriate institutionalization of elders by providing the necessary support to maintain them in the community. Comprised of dedicated professionals and volunteers, we enable older adults to live with as much independence and freedom as possible.
