The documentary displayed a group of volunteers bringing music to dementia patients in nursing homes. Using music from their adolescence, the volunteers provided a catalyst to the patients that brought back a part of their old self, whether it was through singing, dancing, or a simple smile. This often caused nearby family members to break down in tears of happiness and nostalgia.
After this documentary, I approached my friend Kris about replicating this at a local nursing home - after months of one-on-one contact with all the residents, we've successfully identified each resident's preferences and now need funding to provide MP3 players and headphones to be able to provide the music 24/7 to them. We hope you consider donating, and thank you for listening to our story.
