MUSIC & MEMORY℠

Recall, re-experience, and embrace important memories.

“Without music, life would be a mistake.” —Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

We’ve all experienced it. Open grandmother’s jewelry box and a waft of her perfume transports you to childhood. Flip to a radio station to hear a few seconds of “Oh What a Night” — suddenly, you’re fondly recalling your Senior Prom.

Our memory and senses move alongside one another with effortless harmony. Like a waltz, Sense takes the lead, and Memory follows suit. And therein lies the beauty and magic of the MUSIC & MEMORY℠ dance. We know today that music has the incredible power to transcend the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. This is because our brains are hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory.

Every day at Weber Place, residents don headphones and listen to customized iPod playlists, created by their loved ones. Once the headphones hit their ears — you’ll have to see it to believe it — residents come alive, brimming with joy and a renewed sense of self. For those suffering from the daily hardships of dementia or Alzheimer’s, this program offers a poignant reprieve.
