Music and Seniors

I have been involved with music and entertainment my whole life, and in this short podcast I discuss how seniors react to music, particularly older music of their generation. I have been particularly touched by the reaction of seniors in advanced stages of dementia and Alzheimers disease, and have realised that music is the one sense that remains, and evokes a reaction even at a late stage of mental deterioration.

If you listen to this podcast, you will understand the significance of the picture below, showing two specific instruments of my youth (many years ago).
