"Their spirit came to life...when you see moments like that, everything is worth it.
Soundtracks is a person-centered creative aging program designed to enrich the lives of older adults living with Dementia, caregivers, and families. The program includes an introductory concert brought directly to residents (eliminating the need to bus residents to an arts event), small group music activities for residents in Memory Care Units, and a Capstone Concert where the CSB and residents share their music with the entire community - all happening inside of an assisted living location.
All CSB musicians have completed CARES Dementia Basics training. Project leaders Allison Hall and Corbin Dillon are Alzheimer’s Association essentialALZ certified and have completed the National Center for Creative Aging’s Online Artist Training Course.
This season our Soundtracks program is hosted by The Waters Senior Living. The program's sessions occur monthly from January through July in a central Waters Senior Living Location. For more information or to inquire about attending a session, contact us.
