Caring Through Music

A New Short Film by CaringKind and Bang & Olufsen

Caring Through Music documents the transformative power of music, and documents how relatives and caregivers use music to spark memories for people with Alzheimer’s.

Inspired by research showing that music is stored in a part of the brain not affected by the same degree of memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s or dementia, Caring Through Music explores how music is being used as a tool to reconnect with memories of the past in the lives of those affected by these cognitive diseases.
