Music & Memory: Meet Henry

For those who haven't seen the viral video from Music & Memory, this is a must see.  The 7-minute video follows Henry, a long-term care resident with dementia, who has difficulty speaking.  When Henry listens to music, he becomes alive and re-energized.  The video demonstrates the power of music for people with dementia.

Music & Memory is a non-profit organization that brings music into nursing homes by training nursing home staff and donating used iPod's to residents.  For more information on Music & Memory, please visit their website.
