Music Memory

I saw an interesting segment on the news last night. It discussed how music is very beneficial to Alzheimer's patients. In fact there are sections in the brain (the medial temporal lobe) which remains preserved from the damaging effects of Alzheimer's disease.  Also the functional mode network (FMN) which connects sections of the brain, works better and may be improved when listening to familiar music.  What music did your family member enjoy?  Burn the songs onto a CD, or MP3 player, print the lyrics and sing with your loved one!  It doesn't matter if you cannot carry a tune!  It will really help their brain, and will improve your mood as well!  Music and Memory

Forums and Online Support Groups

We are very pleased to announce that our Closed and Private Facebook support group has been launched.  Since Facebook members must be 13 years and older, kids younger than 13 can join with their parents. It will allow us to share our daily struggles, connect with other kids, and be a great place to "visit" when an understanding ear is needed.

You can find our Kid Caregivers Support Group (Facebook group) by clicking here:

We look forward to hearing from you and helping out!
