Autumn Leaves is proud to be recognized as a MUSIC & MEMORY® Certified Care Organization.
There are many health benefits to personalized music including reducing depression and anxiety and moderating pain. The program is designed to tap deep into memories and improve the quality of life of our senior residents. Incorporating customized music play lists is a key element of our healthcare resident’s plan of care.
“By bringing personalized therapeutic music into the lives of our senior residents we hope to improve their quality of life,” says Linda Carcano, executive director at Autumn Leaves. According to MUSIC & MEMORY, participants are happier, more social and receptive to care and family visits.
Autumn Leaves has trained staff who create and provide personalized playlists using iPods/MP3 Players and related digital audio systems that enable those struggling with dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories.
