The power of music is magical.
Singing is engaging, especially in the lives of patients dealing with Alzheimer's or Dementia.
Songs can shift a mood, manage stress and even alleviate pain.
It can even help someone recall memories and emotions.

There are patients waiting in your community. Due to COVID19, many people have been isolated in a time when companionship and human interaction has become critically limited.

  • You don't have to have a great voice. In fact, you don't even need to sing. Can you press 'play' on a CD player, or find songs on your I phone.
  • Come alone, or as a team.

  • If you are willing, your time will be greatly appreciated.
