Alive Inside - A Story of Music and Memory

“Sparking Memory”: Alive Inside: A Story of Music & Memory is a powerful and award winning documentary film about the power of music to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self for seniors with dementia. The film follows Dan Cohen, the founder of Music & Memory, as he discovers the ways music can bring new life and joy to nursing home residents and seniors living at home. Research shows that personalized music can benefit individuals living with middle or late stage Alzheimer’s—and reduce stress for caregivers. Come watch the documentary and listen to a Q&A with Linda Taylor, a certified Music & Memory Advocate, following the film.
