Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, and today as many as 5.4 million Americans are living with the disease. Every 69 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease, and by mid-century someone will develop Alzheimer's every 33 seconds. Music therapy to older adults dealing with physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual challenges. The company's mission is to become a premier music therapy content serving older adults in the United States and resources for music therapists around the country. Music Therapy offers Hope for Alzheimer's, Parkinson's. Music might help people with cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, a study suggests. Frank Russo, a cognitive scientist doing research at Ryerson University in Toronto, is using new technology to probe the link between sound and the parts of the brain that control movement.

Music therapy can help Parkinson's patients walk and people with Alzheimer's remember, with song lyrics surfacing in the brain even among people who have lost the ability to recognize their own relatives. Russo is hoping to develop a clearer picture of how music can rehabilitate damaged circuitry and hopes to apply that research to conditions ranging from autism to stroke. CBC's Kim Brunhuber reports on how music therapy might grow as the population ages: Singing releases endorphins into your system and makes you feel energized and uplifted. People who sing are healthier than people who don't.

Singing gives the lungs a workout, Singing tones abdominal and intercostal muscles and the diaphragm, and stimulates circulation. Alzheimers patients vary in their response to music depending on which stage of the disease they're experiencing, but it can also change from day to day. What music should you play for your loved one? Whatever works.
