Memory Care

I have performed piano for Memory Care patients since 2016. It’s been a very rewarding experience, and I feel joy in helping alzheimer’s and dementia patients to reconnect to some wonderful memories through Music.

Here is a list of music that I normally perform in the Memory Care units and Senior Living communities around San Diego. I tend to play the old time classics and traditional songs, since these are the songs that seem to make the biggest connection.
