That is one of my favorite songs. I remember when the black lady sang it at the Billy Graham crusades. I cannot remember name!

I went to a conference on Alzheimers a few years ago. One of the speakers shared that the area of the brain that stores music is one of the last to be affected by ALZ. The music that the person enjoyed is the one that they will remember. I have seen this to be true with many memory care residents.

We may not call it therapy, but many of us do enjoy music. It can help us to relax, enjoy exercise & sure makes housework more fun. Of course, good romantic or inspirational music should not be forgotten.

Do you use music to help keep you going during difficult times?
I find it lifts my spirit and helps me to feel more positive.

I went to seminar for Alzheimer caregivers, One thing I heard was how the area of the brain that stores music is not usually affected by disease.

I have been using music therapy with the residents & they enjoy it. Eleanor would only speak a few words but when we sang old songs like "How much is that Doggie" she would sing along. She also was able to tell "the Night before Christmas" much better than I could.

Anyone else enjoying music?
