Sound Explorations for Individuals with Dementia and their Caregivers

In Spring 2022, The Well and Musicians for Health teamed up to bring Mindfulness, Music and Sound Healing to individuals with dementia and, on select days, to caregivers for 10 weeks. This work is part of the Giving Voice Collaboratives ongoing Creative Connections program. During the weekly sessions, Stacy Sims and Sonya Verma from The Well provide a consistent rhythm of music listening, easy movement, and sharing as appropriate/available from the participants. The last two or three sessions Zac Greenberg, of Musicians for Health, will perform live music for the group.  

Lead artist, Sonya Verma introduces the sound of singing bowls.
