OFPD Coffee & Conversation addresses power of Music in Alzheimers and dementia Sept. 26, 2019

The Orland Fire Protection District (OFPD) will focus on the challenges of Alzheimers at its next public “Coffee & Conversation” community meeting on Thursday, September 26, 2019.

Research has shown that Music has a powerful impact on memory and can be used to address the debilitating impact of Alzheimers and dementia among seniors.

The Coffee & Conversation meetings are held each month from 10 am until 12 noon, with refreshments and snacks. Co-sponsored by Aishling Companion Home Care, the Coffee & Conversation meetings are open and free to residents of the Orland Fire Protection Distirct only.

The Orland Fire Protection District offers a wide range of programs for the public, from senior care and information Coffees to emergency training for the public. Visit the OFPD website at www.OrlandFire.org for more information. Photo courtesy of the Orland Fire Protection District

Aishling will discuss “The Music & Memory” program which has been proven time and time again to take seniors with Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s from a non-responsive state and re-engage them with the world.
