Music & Memory
Asbury Heights is proud to announce that it is a certified Music & Memory community.
Grounded in extensive research, Music & Memory helps people living with a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges to find renewed joy in life through musical favorites. Our care team is trained to develop personalized playlists, delivered through iPods and incorporating the music into the resident’s plan of care.
Studies have shown that those with dementia retain certain memories associated with music, rhythms, songs and prayers from their past. By re-introducing them to their old favorites, residents who are primarily uncommunicative may begin to sing, hum or even communicate more. They may also become more social, happier and physically active.
The Music & Memory program is currently available to residents of our Willow Community. There are plans to expand the program to other areas of the campus in the very near future.
