A little about the workshop...

Our experience teaches that personalized music benefits everyone regardless of diagnosis. Personalized music promotes the recall of memories that inspire a renewed sense of self for participants, fulfillment of purpose for their caregivers, and deeper connections for family.

Personalized music provides a broad scope of benefits and can be used strategically as a tool to meet goals and achieve specific outcomes. Yet the vast majority of individuals receiving care do not have access to it. Every day professional care staff, community volunteers, students, and family caregivers alike use a personalized music program to enhance the quality of life for individuals they serve and care for.

Personalized music is the best medicine and number one stimulus of the brain benefiting individuals with cognitive, intellectual, mental, and physical challenges. Anecdotal and evidence-based research conducted by hospitals, skilled nursing, assisted living, behavioral health, and universities using solid, researched-based methods have shown a reduction in areas such as medication, anxiety, agitation, falls, physical altercations, feeding tubes, depression and pain, as well as increases in brain stimulation and enhanced nutrition. This research also confirms that providing personalized music for persons with dementia, no matter how advanced, can be transformative. Benefits may include enhanced communication, positive mood, transformed visits with friends and family members, and greater participation in activities and therapy.
