Dementia360/KAIROS Memory Cafe’ Outreach

What a beautiful day our KAIROS Memory Cafe’ attendees experienced in October when Jennifer came and played for us! Music is so important for those living with dementia. There are many health benefits of music, including boosting mood, reducing agitation and stress, improving focus, relieving symptoms of depression, stimulating memories, expressing feelings, managing, and easing pain, and even heart-healthy – research shows that blood flows more easily when music is played. As you can see from the pictures, we really enjoyed the music, and we cannot wait to have Jennifer join us again! Thank you, Kansas City Civic Orchestra, for sharing her with us today! You exceeded our expectations!!Christi Crawford, Dementia360 Consulting/KAIROS Memory Cafe'
