StoneGate Senior Living Hosts 2nd Annual “Music Drive” for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Residents

We’d love to provide each resident with a personal device loaded with their favorite music and spread the contributions to our fellow neighbors who also offer the Music and Memory program.

StoneGate Senior Living, a leading provider of senior care, is holding the 2nd annual “Music Drive” to help Texas residents in need. Organizers are seeking community donations from June 21 through July 20, 2018 at eight participating locations to benefit seniors enrolled in the MUSIC & MEMORY program.

MUSIC & MEMORY℠ is a non-profit organization that provides personalized music to those in nursing homes and other care organizations who suffer from a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges. Research proves that music helps trigger memories and improve quality of life in those deal with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

“Our inaugural Music Drive last year was a huge success, and we were able to provide a personal device loaded with music to our residents. But we are still restricted in how many residents we can enroll due to our device limitations,” says Angela Norris, StoneGate Senior Living’s Senior Vice President of Business Development. “We’d love to provide each resident with a personal device loaded with their favorite music and spread the contributions to our fellow neighbors who also offer the Music and Memory program.”

When: June 21 to July 20
What: Music Drive to collect:

  • New and used devices (example: iPods or MP3 players in working condition)
  • Device chargers
  • New over-the-ear headphones
  • iTunes gift cards
  • Monetary contributions

2.    Briarcliff Healthcare Center – Carthage, TX

5.    Settlers Ridge Care Center – Celina, TX
6.    Villages on MacArthur – Irving, TX

The “Music Drive” will kick-off on the Alzheimer’s Associations “The Longest Day,” a campaign encouraging people to do activities they love and raise funds and awareness for care and support while advancing research.

“Each facility will be hosting an event for The Longest Day, and that will be the start of our 2018 Music Drive,” says Norris. “Everyone loves music. Why not help improve the quality of someone’s life by donating the gift of music to a resident in need?”
