Bridging relationships between people with dementia, their families, and the greater community who serve them through live musical interactions, training, and research in music-based approaches.
Musical Bridges to Memory™ is a one-of-a-kind program, unique for its emphasis on supporting the relationship between individuals with dementia and their families. ITA partners with memory-care facilities in the Midwest region of the United States to teach caregivers and family members of people living with the disease how music-based techniques can be used to stimulate memory and language, thereby prolonging the length of time that families remain in harmony.
Musical Bridges to Memory™ is generously funded by an anonymous donor and the Dementia Society of America. To learn more about how you can support this program, contact Amanda Ziemba.
