Spectrum Generations offering Music and Memory program to aid those with memory issues
Hallowell, Maine – Spectrum Generations is working in partnership with LincolnHealth to provide Music and Memory to persons living in Lincoln County.
Music and Memory helps people living with a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges to find renewed joy in musical favorites. Music can help relieve boredom, empower choice, enable memory, and provide avenues for genuine communication with loved ones and caregivers. The program, offered through Spectrum Generations, is open to anyone that that experiences issues with their memory, or those affected by Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
The expectation of the program is for participants to play music daily for 30-60 minutes for 6 months, complete 3 surveys during that time, help define a personalized playlist, and be willing to track daily use. Spectrum Generations will provide all necessary equipment for the program: MP3 player, headphones, and a personalized playlist. iPads will also be available to the first 10 caregivers that reside in Lincoln County.
