Music & Dementia: The Power of Communication
Wednesday, March 20
5:30-6:30 p.m.
Stonebridge Recreation Center
230 Karl Linn Dr. 
North Chesterfield, VA 23225

Music can enrich the lives of people with Alzheimer’s disease, allowing for self-expression and engagement, even after dementia has progressed. Music can be powerful. Studies have shown music may reduce agitation and improve behavioral issues that are common in the middle stages of the disease. Even in the late-stages of Alzheimer’s, a person may be able to tap a beat or sing lyrics to a song from childhood. Music provides a way to connect, even after verbal communication has become difficult. Join us for an engaging learning session on Dementia and Music.

MEMORY CAFES
Memory Cafés offer a fun and relaxed way for people living with early-stage memory loss to get connected with one another through social events that promote interaction and companionship. This is a place where the care partner can receive information while connecting and sharing with other people in similar situations. The bonds formed in Memory Cafés often last throughout the continuum of the disease and become an additional support for those involved.
