The Great American Songbook Foundation and our team of Perfect Harmony educators invite you to join us October 25th, 9AM - 4PM, at The Center for the Performing Arts for the second annual Perfect Harmony Fall Training Workshop sponsored by Applegate Elder Law

 

Perfect Harmony is a music therapy-based, dementia-friendly program for seniors living with Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative conditions. Endorsed by the Greater Indiana Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, Perfect Harmony promotes social, emotional, physical and cognitive well-being through music, which has been scientifically proven to enliven the brain and bring joy to people of all abilities, even those with cognitive challenges. This annual fall training workshop was developed with the intention of empowering caregivers to use music as a shared experience to enrich the lives of those in their care.  

 

Join us for the day as Allegra Sorley, MT-BC, Maria Holmes, MSW, LSW, Alzheimer’s Association Care Consultant, Michael Rothenberger, Owner of Home Care Assistance Carmel, and our staff of Perfect Harmony educators present and share the benefits of using music as a tool in memory care. Participants will learn the science behind Music Therapy; discuss methods for engaging the following five areas of the brain: motor/physical, communication, social/emotional, cognitive and sensory; and collaborate on activity plans and goal setting.

 

Register now to learn about the power of music and how it can benefit those living with the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
