Connections between Music and Memory

Extensive neuroscience research has shown that music can have a profound effect on memory and health. The simple experience of listening to music can revitalize individuals with dementia and other brain disorders, and can be used to improve one’s quality of life.
As part of our commitment to delivering award-winning care at Central Baptist Village, we offer an engaging music therapy program led by Virginia Caldwell, our board certified music therapist with a special credential in neurologic music therapy. Recently, Virginia and Julie Stevens, Director of Sales and Marketing, were featured on Aging Info Radio.
