Details: Music & Memory is a certified program that utilizes personalized iPod playlists to bring joy and reawakening to Alzheimer's and other dementia patients. One can see eyes open, their feet begin to tap, their lips move as they sing along, and a brightness in their faces. The familiar music reaches what is often the last remaining part of the brain function, triggering deep memories, not yet lost to dementia.  

To attend, you must donate new iPod shuffles or gently used iPods, and/or Apple Store or iTunes gift cards to support the program!
