. This program enhances Dementia care through personalized music. Personalized Music is a simple yet effective program of bringing specific music to individuals with dementia. Your staff will be trained to set up personalized music playlists, delivered on iPods and other digital devices for individuals in their care. Research and evaluation of similar programs show residents are happier and more social, relationships with family residents and staff deepen, behavior management issues are lessened, and personalized music gives an additional tool to use in the treatment of individuals with dementia.
Please take advantage of this opportunity offered by the NCALTCF Education Foundation. Complete and submit the application to Yolanda Stith by July 1, 2015. Providers will be notified on July 10, 2015 of their acceptance into the NCALTCF Music and Memory™ Scholarship Program.
