Singing/playing musical instrument therapy for people with various forms of dementia and Alzheimers'
Music Mends Minds (MMM) is a member of the Alzheimer's/Dementia Rotary Action Group, and a nationally recognized non-profit (musicmendsminds.org) by NPR and CBS. The original band, The Fifth Dementia, is on YouTube, and this Vashon Rotary Community Service project since 2015 is sustainable, low cost (less that $1000/yr.), high Rotarian volunteer involvement (out of 45 club members, 5 participate weekly), and enables patients with these diseases to remain at home. There is no cure, yet by 2017, 55 million worldwide will suffer from these diseases! So I urge you to contact me to Serve Beyond Self with this effective, easy to implement Community Service Project for your community.
