I would highly recommend anyone set 90 minutes aside and watch Alive Inside, a beautiful, moving film about the effect of music on people living with dementia.

Here is the trailer.

And here is the whole film.

Damn. I've just checked my links. The trailer is still there. The full film has been taken down due to a copyright claim. It's a film very much worth buying, as you'll see from the trailer. I've just checked and it's available online.

There are various supplemental materials that come up with a search of YouTube for "Alive Inside." Here's one that struck me, with music helping Henry remember who he is:

I lead a church caroling group that hits 8 to 11 nursing homes at Christmas and Fourth of July. I especially enjoy singing at the memory care centers. This year, we were scheduled during dinner; and I usually don't link to sing during meals because people are more interested in eating. But not at the memory care center. When we started with the National Anthem, everybody stopped eating - and several people stood up, put their hands on their hearts, and sang along. And they sang with us through our whole program, almost half an hour. Sometimes, the response from these people makes me feel like sobbing. It's just so moving.

Thanks for the extra link, Joe, and for sharing your story. I know little enough about how the human brain works, but I've heard on several good authorities that more neural pathways are working in music than in pretty much another activity and so its integration into personality is so well established. Your story of Christmas and 4th July echoes the stories in the film. I found the film so moving that I sat and cried through it. I hope the it has a wide impact on care of people in residential care - but sadly I have my doubts.

Thank you for this. My daughter is a music therapist. I know that, if she has not already seen the film, she will be very interested in it. Thanks again.
