Meet Drew, who participates in the Music & Memory program at the Mountain View Lodge in British Columbia, Canada.
Before joining the program, Drew would often lose interest in activities or conversations with others, and was easily distracted. But when listening to his favorite music, he became calmer and found it easier to connect with others. Drew is in his thirties and quite young compared to other residents, and listening to his favorite pop and rap music helps him feel more connected with moments from his generation.
