This video is a 30 minute taste of an hour-long live therapeutic show I do for folks with memory care issues. I am hoping this can be a fun and helpful tool for your loved ones with Alzheimer's, dementia, or brain injury.
I have discovered that singing, clapping and laughing release these happy little hormones called endorphins. These endorphins create a sense of well being and can even relieve pain. Over the last 8 years I have successfully developed an hour long engaging show that encourages audiences to participate as much as they can to gain from the therapeutic benefits of those wonderful little chemicals.
Throughout the show I am showing fun enjoyable ways to release endorphins in those happy participants. More often than not I have folks coming up after my shows asking when I will return. It is because they feel so good and they want to feel that way again.
I've done over 1,000 of these shows in the last few years and have seen memories sparked, smiles, joy, happy tears...and singing...lots of singing! I posted this to see if watching this video on a big screen is as effective at bringing about those therapeutic benefits as a live show is.
Please show this video to anyone who needs the benefits of therapeutic music for memory care issues. I believe it will be more effective on a large screen. Please leave any comments on how your loved ones receive this so I can see if it is helpful. If they watch it on a small screen...let me know how it is received.
Thank you and much love to you...you are amazing!
