Songs By Heart
Lutheran Life Communities is a program partner with Songs By Heart Foundation which connects Memory Care neighbors with the pure joy of music.
The Songs by Heart Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for persons facing age related memory issues through the power of music. Using interactive live vocal music they engage the intellectual, physical, social, spiritual and emotional dimensions of well being.
Professionally trained musicians lead interactive sing along programs five days a week in memory care facilities. These programs focus on popular songs of the 1930s-60s. The key is to get the residents singing songs that they like and remember from their youth - be it Frank Sinatra, the Andrews Sisters, Cole Porter, or Disney!
Our program’s goal is to help people with age related memory loss engage in a way that brings them joy, and often, an enhanced ability to reconnect with language.
Experts say that Music has the power to reach in and unlock the joy and create the emotional release that these people may not otherwise be able to express.
A resident family member recently shared: “We're so grateful for the wonderful programs the Songs by Heart Foundation provides and it further proves the theory that music transcends dementia and goes straight to the heart and soul. It is truly the best therapy.”
