St. Camillus has paired with MUSIC & MEMORY℠, a non-profit organization that brings personalized music into the lives of the elderly or infirm through digital music technology, vastly improving quality of life. This exceptional, personalized music program is rapidly sweeping our nation and is grounded in extensive neuroscience research. Its purpose is to enhance quality of life and promote culture change in long term care environments. We are excited to bring this facility certification to St. Camillus Health Center and St. Camillus Adult Day Health for the benefit of our residents, participants, family members, employees, and community.
Music can transport an individual to another place and time, often unlocking fond memories from our youth or special events in our lives. Specific artists and songs are the key to Music and Memory’s success. Our staff has been trained how to create and provide personalized playlists using iPods and related digital audio systems that enable those struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories. Our team, along with family members, will create a powerful personalized music program for each person who chooses to participate.
This facility certification has been made possible due to the generosity of ERA Key Realty Services of Northbridge, MA. There is no fee for participating in this program. We will be relying on the generosity of family and friends to provide new or gently used iPods, iTunes gift cards, and monetary donations to fund this program as it grows.
Please consider donating to this amazing program.
