What People Say
"As a teacher, my mother was as fiercely devoted to the young ones in her care as she was to her own children. With such an example, I am inspired to find ways to enrich her life. Singing with the 5th Dementia Band makes her face light up with smiles. While I welcome any therapeutic value that music may hold, I find the greatest value is in having a place where my mother can experience joy. I’m so thankful to have found Music Mends Minds."
