Ordinary heroes can make small, practical choices and stop this selfish pandemic.

Marlon Sobol – The Power of Music to Heal Seniors with Dementia

Researchers have focused on how music can benefit those with Alzheimer’s. Anecdotal evidence shows that music can tap memories and reduce anxiety, pain, heart rate, and blood pressure. It can help accelerate healing, boost learning, improve neurological disorders and increase social interaction. Musical memories are often preserved in Alzheimer’s disease because key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged by the disease. Listening to favorite music can trigger long-term memories and bring comfort to people with Alzheimer’s. Music therapy can also reduce agitation, anxiety, and aggression in people with dementia. For some people, music may help ease physical pain. And research suggests that group singing may help improve memory and social interactions. Today My guest is Marlon Sobol MT-BC, LCAT. Marlon is a highly energetic and engaging music therapist and musician with over 20 years of experience in the Healthcare industry and has toured America and Europe, playing some of the biggest stages. He chooses to make meaningful music experiences with people of all ages and walks of life! Keeping a high-performance bar helps create a strong music-centered therapeutic and immersive experience for the seniors. He believes capturing top group music therapy techniques on video creates a vibrant, healthy community.
