More than 5.3 million people in the United States have Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Those who live with these conditions gradually become disconnected from their lives. ECS is a certified provider of Music & Memory℠, an innovative program that helps people find renewed meaning and connection through the gift of personalized music, supplied by trained staff and volunteers.
We know that even when memory fails, people remember childhood songs and music from long ago. For those living with memory loss, music can be transformative—helping to restore the ability to converse, socialize and be present.
Families of participants have become enthusiastic supporters, often personally compiling individual playlists for their loved ones. Families treasure the opportunity to reconnect with their loved one.
We thank all of our donors who have shared their resources to help us create a greater community of caring and commitment.
