“A woman with Frontotemporal dementia enrolled in the Music & Memory program who was experiencing an increase in aphasia. I told her how impressed I was that she was able to identify songs so quickly and she replied, ‘Oh, you have given me back words and memories. I feel like I’m 18 again! I’m right back in that moment – feeling those feelings.’”
