While the program can be enjoyed by any of Home Care Assistance’s clients, the power of music can be especially powerful for seniors living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Jacksonville Home Care Assistance, a leading provider of non-medical, in-home care, is excited to announce that Bernie Katzman with Jacksonville Home Care Assistance was recently interviewed about the company’s ‘Music Through the Ages’ program on WJCT’s show Closing the Loop. The ‘Music Through The Ages’ program encompasses a wide variety of musical activities that include memory recollection reinforcement, cognitive stimulation, long-term memory enhancement, games with percussion and rhythm instruments and senior chorus. Bernie has a career in piano performance, composition and entertainment and has been a music specialist focusing on the senior population for over forty years.
“Studies report that music, when used appropriately, can enhance mood and self-esteem, manage stress-induced agitation, stimulate positive interactions and can promote a senior’s interest levels and social interaction,” said Gary L. Lowery, MD, PhD, and Owner of Jacksonville Home Care Assistance. “While the program can be enjoyed by any of Home Care Assistance’s clients, the power of music can be especially powerful for seniors living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.”
