Music and Memory
Residents who struggle with dementia often find solace during musical performances and when hearing music from their past. Creating and listening to music offers patients a portal into expression that often escapes them. In our nursing home, music is not just entertainment; it is a form of care-giving! GNH has recently been certified as a music and memory facility! We are working diligently on personalizing music for our residents! Please help us move forward and consider donating (new or used) an iPod Shuffle, Nano or Touch, so we can personalize music for each of our residents and offer a form of care-giving just for them! Visit musicandmemory.org and watch the documentary “ALIVE INSIDE!” See firsthand the many benefits of music!!
