CHERYL'S book on Music and Dementia,with companion warm-ups and CDs:
"Alzheimer's, Dementia & the Healing Power of Music: Singalong Therapy"
This is an EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE (PROVEN) technique for helping your loved one, or patients! There's a companion recording for this workbook & 27 songs. There are logging pages for you to track their improvement. While there are no guarantees here, I've had tremendous success with this. It's especially useful if the person or people you are working with have always enjoyed music and singing. This has been a joyful project; and I'm so happy with the success I've had with these techniques. What happens is that the electrical pulses created by the synapses when singing break up the bad protein strands in the brain; reopening the neural pathways. The result is a regaining of linquistic abilities and even memory. One Alzheimer's patient could not even form words when we started. Now she tells me long stories in an eloquent fashion, after only 6 weeks! This is something you can do with your loved one, or in groups of Dementia patients. $29.95 for softcover book w/CD. $20.00 for ebook w/mp3s.
