The Story of Alzheimer’s Music Connect
Like nearly six million other families, Alzheimer’s disease has touched mine. While my family suspected something was wrong with Mom, we were nonetheless devastated when our suspicions were confirmed by her diagnosis. Her first symptoms manifested themselves five years ago and it’s been two years since the diagnosis. In that time, my family and I have witnessed amazing changes in her personality. Where she was once the social “butterfly”, Mom has slowly withdrawn from almost all interaction with friends and to a lesser extent even family.
So, what can be done to keep Mom connected for as long as possible? This question became my quest. With a thirty-year career in the music industry, it was there that I naturally turned for the answer. After months of researching music as a therapy for Alzheimer’s patients, I learned of the incredible impact that a positive musical experience could have on patients from relieving stress and anxiety to improved scores on cognitive-function tests. Therein I found a potential solution to keeping Mom connected, which lead to the creation of Alzheimer’s Music Connect.

Utilizing an exclusive, patent pending Altus Oscillation technique, Alzheimer’s Music Connect adds rhythmical sound waves that enhance specially selected music resulting in a much more effective listening experience. The goal being to have the Alzheimer’s patient reach a desired “state of mind” i.e., relaxed, calm alertness, a reminiscent or even creative condition. What the company has developed is a non-pharmaceutical product capable of relaxing Alzheimer’s Patients while providing valuable respite for their Caregivers.
