The CDs are here!

The CDs were delivered yesterday! Thanks to family and friends who donated to the “Sing Along with Margaret” project, I am able to give away (for free!) 300 CDs to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, their families, and to care centers and nursing homes who want to use Mom’s music. The liner notes inside the CD read:

“Sing Along with Margaret” is a special project that brings meaningful music to people with Alzheimer’s disease and advanced dementia. Music is very powerful, and research shows it is therapeutic: it improves mood, lowers anxiety, reduces depression, and helps people with dementia connect with the present through shared moments of joy.

Margaret recorded these songs with her son, Doug, in 2014, just a few months before she passed away at the age of 84. While she had lost almost all her ability to talk, she could still sing! And music became one of the main ways she communicated.

The “Sing Along with Margaret” project is unique because this music is not only for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, it is sung by a special lady who had the disease, and she continues to share her joy with others.

    This is such a lovely project and an act of love. I can’t wait to show it and play it for my mother who has mid-stage Alzheimer’s!
