Ep 7: Celebrating the Power of Music
Guest: Cathy Reitz, director, Stand in the Light Memory Choir
September 7, 2021
Music and singing are good for all of us, especially for people living with dementia: Research has shown that music can evoke memories and emotions even in people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Musician and educator Cathy Reitz is starting her sixth year directing the Stand in the Light Memory Choir in Eau Claire.
In this episode, she talks with host Lisa Wells of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Eau Claire County about the many – and sometimes unexpected – benefits music provides for the mind, body, and soul.
