Musical Program for People with Dementia

September 25, 2019 | By | More

The DSORC is planning to have a musical program for the stimulation of the memory in people who have dementia.

Here is a description (please feel free to share it with your contacts J):

For people living with dementia, memories may begin to fade away, but emotions can often remain as vibrant as ever. Music uniquely allows us to explore memories of the past while experiencing the enjoyment and pleasure of a beloved tune or classic boogie. Extensive scientific research has demonstrated that music plays a major role in improving the quality of life, mood and brain activity of people living with dementia.

Caregivers can also personally benefit from the power of song while bonding with their family member.

The Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County has a number of music programs across Ottawa in English, French and now in Arabic. The programs are designed top help people living with dementia and their caregivers. Register for an opportunity to express yourself, improve your mood, and be supported by skilled music instructor.

We have connected with an Arabic musical player and a female singer who will start the “Arabic version” of the English and French program.

This is  a survey to explore the number of people interested, and to know their preferences: day of the week, time, their expectations and the venue preference.

Kindly find the link for the survey if you feel convenient to share.
