Music Programs Offer Hope for Families Fighting Alzheimer’s

In June 2017, Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center quietly launched its MUSIC & MEMORY® Program. In its initial stages, it included just two participants and expanded slowly, at a rate of one new participant per month. Now, over a year later, it is composed of more than 15 participants, and its extraordinary results have earned Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center the 2018 Imagine Award for Innovation. Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center is proud to offer its MUSIC & MEMORY® Program to all interested caregivers and their loved ones.
