Alzheimer’s Songs

Music is a powerful tool in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

We believe Music is one of the most powerful forces on Earth. Many who get Alzheimer’s can still sing some of their favorite songs at the late stages of the disease when all else seems lost, they sing old songs perfectly on key. Keep the music in their lives. Keep them Happy. If you have a song you would like added here, let us know. Thanks for listening!

Watch Music Bring Back Memories for Alzheimer’s Patients

If you know someone with Alzheimer’s that seems sad and does not communicate or participate in activities lately, do them the favor of buying them a cheap MP3 Player such as an iPod for them and loading it with their favorite songs from their youth. You will be amazed at how they come back into their personality both during and after the music session. You just might be able  to enjoy your loved ones like they were once again! Good Luck!
