We are so grateful to those who are faithfully providing care for those living in long term care organizations during the COVID-19 crisis. Your work is deeply appreciated.
The seriousness of the situation for those who depend on the comforts of daily routines and visits from loved ones in otherwise normal times can not be underestimated, and the new protocols brought about by this crisis present unique emotional challenges to our most vulnerable populations.
Personalized music is a simple, yet powerful means of supporting the well-being of those in your care, and calming any feelings of isolation or disconnection. Familiar, comforting, music is integral to their quality of life and essential to maintaining their connection to the world that they live in. As more organizations are looking for in-room activities to help reduce isolation and distress, Music & Memory is working harder than ever to ensure that organizations remain connected and equipped with the best resources and training for providing personalized music where it’s needed most.
From now until the end of June 2020, Music & Memory Certification Training is being offered at a 50% discounted rate which includes one year of Music & Memory training and support via the Music & Memory Care Community.
The constant presence of familiar music can help to combat the fear and uncertainty of these times, and improving someone’s quality of life today can help to lift both their spirits and yours. Personalized music has the power to change lives, inspire joy and create moments of connection. For those currently isolated from their loved ones, this is more important now than ever.
Once again, we thank you for everything that you’re already doing to keep people safe, comfortable, and connected during this difficult time. If Music & Memory can aid in your efforts by helping you provide the comfort of beloved music to those who need it most, consider registering for training today.
