Doctors have stated that because music touches so many parts of the brain, when a person hears the music, it may be reaching parts of the brain not affected by dementia and bringing them to the forefront. Music is one way for someone to feel emotions without having to say any words. This is important for people with dementia because at some point, they may struggle with verbal communication. Music is also universal. It is a way to touch peoples’ hearts and souls. At Safe Haven, we believe that music can lift the spirits of our residents and can transcend time and mental states to bring people together. We do our best to incorporate music as often as possible. Not only does it become a way for our residents to communicate, but it also becomes a way for them to still enjoy certain aspects of life while they reside at Safe Haven.
