- 247- Dementia Friendly Music Engagement Alzheimer's Caregivers 54:16
This episode is the one I needed to hear years ago when I first started taking care of my Mom. Regular listeners know that I struggled to connect with my Mom even when I tried using her favorite music. For some, it may be as easy as finding music they relate to, but what about caregivers like myself? How do we use music as an enjoyable way to engage with our loved ones? My biggest challenge was finding music that was her favorite.
I’m chatting with Alexis Baker of Bridgetown Music on the show today. She is a music therapist who shares many tips and advice on successfully incorporating music into our care. We understand the ability of music to change our mood. Utilizing this powerful tool can bring joy to our care recipients’ lives and help them shift to a more positive mindset.
