I believe this program to be an incredibly innovative intervention with persons with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory loss. I believe that this program absolutely has the potential to decrease the use of medications in some of our residents. I have witnessed firsthand with the use of each residents personalized music play lists at times of heightened anxiety, tearfulness, even combative behavior that we are able to decrease these unwanted behaviors and in some cases provide ADL’s where it has otherwise been nearly impossible.
