MUSIC THERAPY for DEMENTIA/ALZHEIMER’S Workshop with Cheryl Hodge

Categorized as: Health & Wellness

Description:

Cheryl Hodge, a brilliant jazz musician

from Bellingham, Washington, is offering a

program to persons experiencing dementia

or Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.

Cheryl’s breakthrough method using music

and song has an undeniably swift effect on

improving the health of most patients

afflicted with a dementia-related disease.

Whether the patient can sing well or not is

a moot point. When any musical memory

comes up, new neural pathways are created

in the brain. Music plays a special role in connecting them to pleasant memories,

feelings of happiness and humanity, while reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety

and agitation. Though not a "fix" for these diseases, it can create new, quality time for

the patient and her/his loved ones and caregivers. Her book Alzheimer’s, Dementia &

the Healing Power of Music (available on amazon.com) is a wealth of information for

caregivers themselves. Cheryl can be reached at hodgecheryl@hotmail.com.
