“This film delves into music’s ability to combat memory loss and help to restore a deep sense of self to those who are going through a dementia diagnosis.” from Olivia Maturano, Alzheimer’s Association


“Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it.” from


Why aren’t we doing this?

We can spend fortunes trying to chemically change and restrict behaviors.

Why not naturally induce this kind of happiness?

It may not work for everyone, rarely does that happen.

But for everyone that it does help, what a blessing!

  1. I enjoyed the video, my sisters and I were all brought up with music and dancing. My Father loved his oldies and so did we. We learned how to Jitter-Bug, Calipso, Twist, Big Band Music and that style of dance, my Father was smooth and I loved to see my parents dance. That is why I love Big Band, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and so on and so on. When I go to visit my mom at Longwood Manor in Maytown there is always music, singing and watching old time movies. It is like one gentle man said “I am one with the world” . With out music it is like not living, it can bring you to tears, laughter, joy and yes memories. I think music should be played every where! It just might sooth the bad and evil in the world. I myself listen to all types of music, at 60 I still blast my head banging music, country, jazz, religious, oldies, new age, just about anything that moves me! Thanks for the video, every body should watch this and all institutions should be doing this! The world goes round and round with Music! Lynn
