Listening to or singing along to music can provide emotional and behavioral benefits for people with different types of dementia. Music can rekindle memories undamaged by the disease, and before you know it, your friend or family member is smiling and enjoying your visit. Research has found that music can relieve stress and reduce anxiety, depression, and agitation. Music can be beneficial to the caregiver as well.

Come join us for continental breakfast and snacks and a special workshop on the healing benefits of music for patients and loved ones with dementia. The event will be held on Thursday, February 15, 2018 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Bridging Communities Inc. (BCI). 6900 McGraw. To RSVP, call Lisa Knott at (313) 361-6377. Seats are limited, so call TODAY!
