Memory Bridge

Memory Bridge creates programs that connect people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias to family, friends, and other people in their local community. We also create programs that reveal to the general public the depths of memory that dementia does not erase.

Our goal is to create a global community of people who, like us, are learning to listen to people with dementia for what they have to teach us about our own humanity.

    This really shows how they do hear you and want that contact with you. Music play a vital part in this communication. I must remember this. Praise God for people that reach out with an loving heart.

    • Thank you for your comment Penny.
      Music is a wonderful way to touch the heart and mind as you say. There is no life journey that does not contain musical memories 🙂

  2. I have been working with the elderly for over 30 and this really made me cry, people with Alzheimer really do love people to speak to them and touch them gentle and I believe they can hear you when you talk to them. God bless them and watch over them!!
