Music & Memory
MASSACHUSETTS — An ongoing debate over nursing homes' use of antipsychotics flared in July during a meeting of the Joint Committee on Elder Affairs.
When I first spoke with Music & Memory founder Dan Cohen last year, he had big plans for his new program that would put iPods with personalized playlists in Alzheimer's and other dementia patients' hands. Successful is much to mild a word to describe what has happened since.
Last week, a funny thing happened: For once, I was not the first person I know to post a nursing home-related story to my Facebook page.
