Recently, Blakeford at Green Hills became a certified Music & Memory community. We’re excited to be a part of an organization that connects music with residents in such a powerful way. Music & Memory is a truly unique addition to our music offerings at Blakeford which, since our opening in 1996, have included concerts, sing-alongs, dance performances, music and movement classes, and even our own ukulele group.
A huge part of the success of our music programs is music therapist Drew Laney who works with residents in both group and one-on-one settings. Drew, in the video below, answers a few questions about the impact of music. You can read more about Drew’s work as a music therapist here.
