Today I watched Michael Rossato-Bennett's documentary about dementia and music. "Alive Inside" needs to be a recommended watch for anyone affected by dementia .... okay, I guess that makes all of us! It shows that the part of the brain that gives all people a love of music is not destroyed by a dementia - and that by listening to the music that they enjoyed in the past, people with dementia can reconnect with life and experience some necessary pleasure that is so often missing from their lives.
Here is a link to the trailer for the documentary.
Parental Guidance is the essential how-to guide for people who don’t live in the same town, city, country or continent as their parent, yet want to actively ensure their parent gets the help they need to maintain well-being, safety and happiness at times when health problems attack independence and longevity.
