Laurel View Village is a certified Music and Memory care facility. Music and Memory allow those with cognitive and physical conditions to engage fully and wholly with the world through the sound of music. Currently, our Life Enrichment team facilitates the Music and Memory program, and our list keeps growing of the residents who want to be a part of it, but we need more hands. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the survey or contact Nikki Deneen. No experience is necessary! 

Studies found that “listening to and performing music reactivates areas of the brain associated with memory, reasoning, speech, emotion, and reward. Two recent studies—one in the United States and the other in Japan—found that music doesn’t just help us retrieve stored memoriesit also helps us lay down new ones.
