GUEST,Lyle Help: With Alzheimers- do songs remain? (47) RE: Help: With Alzheimers- do songs remain? 13 Mar 01

Ebbie: You asked specifically about AlzheimerÕs patients, but much of the feedback you have received is about dementia's in general. The answer to your specific question is yes during the first stage, with diminished capacity to remember during the second stage. Recognition will decrease to the point where they may be able to hum along and show some spark of familiarity, and eventually even that recognition disappears. The point to ALWAYS remember with AlzheimerÕs is to treat them with the dignity they deserve whether they recognize you or anyone around them.
