We all rely and depend on a compass to direct us on our human journey through life with the brain providing the energy directing the compass.
Once the brain becomes sick, it can no longer fully provide that function. Its inactivity may be a result of Alzheimer’s disease, which is a form of dementia.
Some of the most notable symptoms of this disease are memory loss, confusion, changes in mood and personality, and withdraw from work or social activities. It’s always best to have an examination by a physician for an official diagnosis.
There are about 5.1 million people in the United States diagnosed with Alzheimer’s whose cost to the health care system is about $236 billion dollars in 2016. As a home care provider, JEVS At Home is focused on fostering a healthy relationship with those that suffer from this terrible disease among caregivers, clients, families, and loved ones.
It has always been expressed that the “Arts” can stimulate the brain. To help engage our participants diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, JEVS At Home is in the planning stages of developing a music therapy program that will stimulate the brain of clients with Alzheimer’s. Engaging clients to listen to familiar music may enable them to recall the past through speech and movement.
Where words fail, music speaks.
