I was exceptionally pleased to read your article about the “Music Care Program” coming to three local Senior's Facilities.
My mother was a resident of Hillsdale Estates. My family and myself ensured she would have Music playing as much as possible.
The first gift from my daughter was a CD player. Then we had fun choosing the different CDs for her. She especially enjoyed The Irish Rovers and The Tenors. I was visiting her one day and she was actually tapping her toes to the music.
I have always believed music to be a vital and essential part of life. It helps people with Dementia, by maybe stirring a memory inside.
I donated a CD and Radio player for the Residents and I saw there was a response to music. They seemed to “come alive”.
A big “thanks to” the Government of Ontario and the Trillium Foundation.
