Music & Memory at The Gardens

Our partnership with Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliances, SAACA, has brought us many talented artists in medias such as art, music and writing. Most recently they have brought a wonderful program to our memory care facility, The Gardens, the gift of personalized music. They interviewed the residents and came up with an iPod of music that they can listen to at any time. As soon as we turned on the music, everyone came alive! Some where tapping their feet along, singing, even dancing and some just a simple smile. All of these reactions were amazing to see especially with some of our more closed off residents. It is going to be so exciting to see how this music and the future music put on their iPod will bring new life to each of the residents! Thank you SAACA for bringing the Music and Memory program here to The Fountains!
