Using the Power of Personalized Music

October 17, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


How does hearing some of your favorite childhood songs impact you? Chances are, you remember every single word, it takes you back to the “good-ol-days”, and you get a great big smile across your face. Now, think about how good this music can make someone in your life feel who is sick, lonely, suffering from memory loss, or perhaps even facing their final days, weeks, or months left on earth. It can bring joy, happiness, connection, comfort, and memories.

Don’t miss Perry Lutheran Home’s next topic in the free, AgingWell seminar series “Using the Power of Personalized Music”. This free and informative seminar will take place at 2:00PM on Tuesday, October 17 at the Perry Public Library at 1101 Willis Ave., Perry, IA. Snacks will be provided, so bring a friend.

If you are a spouse, child, caregiver, or friend and would like to learn ways to use the power of personalized music with your loved ones to create an environment that’s best for them to live and thrive, RSVP to this free and informative seminar today.
