Dementia Alliance of North Carolina has become a certified Music & Memory at Home provider
Music & Memory is an evidence-based, field-tested program which helps people living with dementia find renewed joy and connection to life through musical favorites. Our volunteer team is trained to help you develop a personalized playlist on a digital music player for your family member’s use.
Our trained staff and volunteers engage persons with dementia and their family or care partner on how to identify beloved music, develop a personalized playlist, and use the Music & Memory at Home Kit, which includes a digital music player uploaded with the person’s favorite music, headphones, a bluetooth speaker and written guides.
How does Personalized Music Make a Difference at Home?
- Helps your family member ‘age in place’ and remain at home longer
- Provides respite and tools for you and in-home care professionals
- Eases the stress of transitioning from one environment to another
- Offers a low-cost, effective option to reduce reliance on mood-altering medications
