IMES FUNERAL HOME MAKES DONATION TO MC ENDOWMENT FOR HEALTHCARE’S MUSIC AND MEMORY PROGRAM
The Murray Calloway Endowment for Healthcare recently received a $500 donation from Matt and Wendy Imes towards the Dr. Jan Weaver Music and Memory program at Spring Creek Health Care.
This program supports the training of eight employees who
have recently completed their Music & Memory Training Certification
allowing them to work with dementia and Alzheimer patients by providing high
quality, person-centered care through digital music technology. These employees
will identify those residents who could benefit from the program and work with
them to provide iPods with personalized playlists tailored for each one.
Dr. Weaver remembers his wife Jan, having a connection to music and could sing along to the lyrics, however, was unable to carry on a conversation. He feels like this is a program that will really impact those residents and give them a sense of connection while allowing reinforcement for social adjustment and companionship through music.
Spring Creek Health Care will be one of seven facilities in Kentucky to be Music & Memory certified.
For more information on the mission of the Endowment or the Dr. Jan Weaver Music & Memory Program at Spring Creek Health care, visit www.MCCHEndowment.org or call (270) 762-1908.
