"Despite the enormous sums of money spent on mood- and behavior-altering medications that are often not particularly effective, nothing compares to personalized music when it comes to improving quality of life."
- Tony Lewis, Former President and CEO, Cobble Hill LifeCare, Brooklyn, NY
MUSIC & MEMORY® Certification Training consists of two 90-minute live webinars, offered monthly, and is designed to teach organizations how to first pilot Music & Memory, then scale their program to be organization wide. Following the training, all team members will have a full year of access to unlimited training (including Tablet Training), resources, volunteer support, free music, peer discussion, and email/phone support from Music & Memory.
Training costs are based on the number of residents/clients served by the organization (for-profit or non-profit):
51 or more: $1,250
8 or fewer: $500
Number of residents/clients served refers to “number of beds”. For organizations with multiple sites, serving 51 or more residents/clients, each additional site is $800. Hospital pricing is $800 per department.
The first year of training and support is included in the certification fee. After that, an organization pays $200 annually to continue accessing Music & Memory services, these include:
- Unlimited staff team training
- Program resources
- Peer support
- Free music
- Phone/email support from Music & Memory
All of the above resources help to sustain a program in the long run. Staff come and go, but a Music & Memory program can sustain for years by continually sending new staff for certification training.
Annual renewal fee for hospitals is $200 per department.
Program Equipment Costs
Equipment is not provided by Music & Memory. Equipment costs vary depending on the size of the organization and method of delivery. General recommendations are offered during certification training. As a general guideline for assembling an equipment budget, we recommend budgeting about $100 per person. This includes music players, headphones, and starter music.
During certification training, organizations are offered the opportunity to purchase additional program equipment at a discount through partnering vendors.
Discounted equipment is not available outside the United States and Canada.
