Music Awakens Happiness And Memories

Vera, living with dementia, replies, “The melody. I love to sing and listen. I used to sing in Europe while I worked. It’s a good feeling. Makes life happier and reminisce precious moments.”

Thanks to you, our donors, Eskaton Foundation expanded the Therapeutic Music Program by bringing Music Partners in Healthcare musicians to six Eskaton memory care programs in the Sacramento area.

Jane Young, activity director at Eskaton Village Placerville, thinks it is an awesome program. “Judy (harpist) and Michael (guitarist) engaged with our residents in different forms like movement, conversation and gentle touch. They both know our residents by name and treat them with honor, dignity and respect.”
