“Music and Dementia” will highlight the power of music to maximize comfort and enhance quality of life for persons with dementia.The speaker is Dr. Maribeth Gallagher, one of the facilitators at the FTD Support Group based at Banner Alzheimer’s Institute in Phoenix.
The group meets on the second Tuesday of every month from 12.30 – 2pm. It is a comforting, supportive environment with many caregivers, past and present who talk about their experiences through FTD or just listen to your story. You can talk or not, there is no pressure, no “advice”, just people like you talking about their life.
The group is supported by the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (www.theaftd.org) and has lots of resources for you to tap into and have your questions answered.
