ComForCare is a leader in home care services for people with dementia. Whether we’re providing care for clients with Alzheimer’s Disease, Lewy Body Disease, Vascular Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, Alcoholic Dementia, Mild Cognitive Impairment, or a more rarely diagnosed dementia, our team stays up-to-date on dementia care best practices with our DementiaWise Home Care Services. With dementia rates on the rise, research efforts are yielding breakthroughs that provide new insights into dementia care every day.
Joyful Memories was created when our National Director of Music and Special Program, Steve Toll, was inspired to research and develop a music therapy tool for seniors who have been diagnosed with dementia. The program helps to strengthen cognitive functions and embraces the therapeutic benefits of music. We focus our attention on age-related conditions and diseases which affect cognitive and physical abilities, with special attention given to our clients with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. This special program uses tools to help clients remain calm, engage socially, and functioning at their best.
There are two parts of the program:
- Memories Group – seniors and their loved ones can gather together to sing and dance.
- One-on-One – our team builds a customized playlist based on life experiences and memories. This can help strengthen the bond between the senior and their caregiver.
In the video below, Steve and other members of the ComForCare team talk about how music therapy can help individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
