Music & Memories
The Koelsch Communities Music Program is a program that taps into each person’s deep rooted love of music. It’s about bringing joy to the lives of people suffering from Alzheimer’s, other forms of dementia and a wide range of cognitive and physical impairments. Sterling Commons, has trained staff that set up personalized music playlists for residents. These musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can “reawaken” residents, enabling them to feel like themselves again, converse, socialize and stay present.Join us in the amazing journey of connecting elders with memory loss to the music of a lifetime.
