If you have a passion for music and seniors then this is the opportunity for you. Music Therapy for seniors offers various physical and mental health benefits. Musical memories are often preserved in Alzheimer's disease because key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged by the disease. Music helps to lower the level of the stress hormone cortisol. The effect causes seniors to feel calmer and physically more capable of relaxing.
