Music can treat and even help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
If you think about it, it makes sense: I can’t find my keys, but I can sing the words to songs that I haven’t heard in 40 years!
Of course it’s no magic bullet, but music DOES stimulate the mind and exercise the memory. Music also reduces anxiety and depression, which makes it good for the patient and the caregivers.
So, go ahead and pick up that favorite Frank Sinatra record (Oops! That’s a CD these days), bring it on your next visit to your favorite caregiver and relieve some stress.
