Music & Memory

Working to Improve Dementia Care and Quality of Life 

Designed to improve the lives of residents in skilled nursing facilities who suffer from Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disorders, LeadingAge Washington and the Music & Memory Project will provide personalized music to skilled nursing residents in approximately 45 participating communities during a two year period.

The project incorporates the nationally known Music & Memory℠ program which brings individualized music to residents in long term care homes via iPods. Since 2008, the program has been successfully implemented in thousands of long-term care facilities in the U.S. and Canada.

The Music & Memory℠ Grant is funded through CMS. The project is open to all LeadingAge Washington nursing home providers in Washington state.  For more information contact Pat Sylvia at psylvia@LeadingAgeWa.org
