Autumn Leaves™ to Host Five Major Alzheimer’s Events
Featuring the Houston-area premiere of His Neighbor Phil
On Tuesday, April 5, from 4:30-7 p.m., Autumn Leaves, a national leader in memory care assisted living, will host the first of five events that showcase the power of music to promote cognition and moments of joy for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
The events will feature the Houston-area premiere of the independent film His Neighbor Phil – an acclaimed drama about the positive effects of music in caring for people with Alzheimer’s disease. The movie screening will be preceded by a Q&A session with a panel of elder care experts. A light meal will also be served.
The event is free and open to the public, and is intended for clinical and care management professionals, as well as caregivers and family members who have a loved one with dementia.
The opening event will feature radio personalities, Lori La Bey and Dana Tyson. Lori La Bey, founder and host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio , was named the No. 1 online influencer for Alzheimer’s disease by Dr. Oz, and will be an expert speaker during Autumn Leaves’ 30 minute panel discussion. KODA morning radio show host, Dana Tyson, will act as moderator for the event. La Bey will be featured at all five Autumn Leaves events.
In conjunction with the movie premiere, Autumn Leaves is launching an innovative music program across its 40-plus communities in seven states. Called So Much More™ to Experience , the program will provide individualized playlists for residents they can enjoy on their own, or in the company of family and friends.
Pilot sessions of the program demonstrate the power of these personalized playlists to spark memories and promote cognition and engagement. Residents often smile, clap their hands, tap their toes, sing along or even dance during the initial sessions to identify music that is meaningful to them.
“It’s an amazing phenomenon – when a resident finds a song that resonates, they reconnect with the world,” says Kristin Dupont, Vice President of Marketing for The LaSalleGroup, Inc., the parent company of Autumn Leaves. “We see this as a way to enhance our residents’ quality of life and give families a way to interact with their loved ones. Being able to witness this first-hand is something special.”
Seating is limited for the events, so pre-registration is strongly encouraged. For information about dates, times, and locations, and to register, visit AutumnLeaves.com/Phil.
