Over the past several months I have seen several newsprint articles on the power of music and dementia. Most recently, the Reading Eagle reprinted an article by Karen Garloch from The Charlotte Observer titled Music Stirs Memories for People with Dementia. This amazing article inspired me. (to read the article click on the article title) The article really made me think about how much music has always been a part of my life. I can associate many milestones in my life with a song that was popular at the time. Music can touch the soul in a way other art forms can not.
Want to see what music can do? Take a look at this video. Man listens to music.
