Home Care in Sacramento CA
Support For Home was pleased to present on the Music & Memory Program to the community members at the Davis Senior Center on Thursday, November 10th. Music & Memory is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 by social worker Dan Cohen, which trains care professionals to bring personalized music, through digital technology, into the lives of those affected with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease to greatly improve the quality of life.
The purpose of the presentation was not only to share the history of the Music & Memory program but to also so how Support For Home has implemented the program as a specialty program & share our successes and challenges along the way. We also showed the audience members how they could implement the program with their own loved ones at home or how they could get involved.
The response from the community was wonderful & the room was filled. April Carni, Community Relations Manager for Support For Home opened with a personal story of her own then showed the incredible clip of Henry from the incredible documentary, “Alive Inside” which won the Documentary Audience award at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in 2014. We also showed how anyone can create personalized music from musical assessment forms asking very specific questions or how to compose a list more easily by becoming an Alive Inside detective by using the web application at www.aifAPP.com.
Support For Home would like to thank Lisa DeAmicis, Information Assistance Coordinator & Dana Welch also of Davis Senior Center for inviting us to present & providing wonderful assistance in facilitating our presentation.
