    My grandma had Alzheimer's and she passed away in February. I only wish I would've seen this documentary before she died. I will definitely be passing this message along.

    Music is really powerful. I work at the aged sector and dementia hospital, it is hard communicating with them especially those who are bed bound. I started singing to them while feeding and giving cares to them and I was really amazed how they hum back to the tune that i was singing to them. And cares and feeding becomes easier. And when their eyes open and look at you, it is so fulfilling. 🙂

    I visit a 47 yrs old woman who has  Alzheimer's she loves music. She is now in fetal position and on a feeding tube. She still dances moving her shoulders and hums.

    Might have been asked before, what is the music toward the middle of the trailer? Anybody know?

  14. Laurna Tallman
    Laurna Tallman January 26, 2015

    Music alters the strength of the tiny muscles in the middle ear to allow more sound to be transmitted to the left (most important in dementia and other cognitive disorders) and right (vital to improve depression) halves of the brain. The right ear controls all states of consciousness from waking to sleeping and everything in between. Mental illness is slow speeds of integration and weak left-brain dominance. Check out my publications in which I explain how I healed our son's schizophrenia.

    Excellent doco, although I was a bit concerned about the bit which seemed to condemn the government-funded nursing homes. To me, this came across as an attack on universal healthcare. Universal healthcare is not free, it is funded by our taxes. Yes, it isn't perfect however it is up to us to pressurise the government to better fund it rather than waste tax dollars on illegal wars, etc.. I work in two nursing (Catholic, not-for-profit) homes, one is better than the other, but without the less-good one there would be a few of these residents who would be homeless, or simply die in their homes. What the doco doesn't mention also is that often special machinery is required to transfer residents to/from bed/chairs, and for a resident to stay in their own home often expensive modifications are required. However, it goes without saying that it is obviously much better for a person to be able to stay in their own homes (and quite often it is a family member that makes the decision not to keep them in their own homes). I work with residents every day, and can see their spirit seem to wane from being so bored and getting "cabin fever". Some great people in this doco.. The woman with bi-polar has such a generous spirit, and a poetic soul. What will my iPod playlist be if I get Alzheimer's?! Rage Against The Machine, The Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Public Enemy.. Long live music!

    I watched this full documentary and cried the whole time.  Some of the tears were from empathy, some from fear and mostly from joy.  Having taken care of my grandfather until his dying day, I got to see first hand what dementia can do to a person.  I will do my part in helping our elderly generation stay in touch with their souls through music.

    They're now using music for stroke patients to assist them with their speech recovery. They are able to sing their thoughts to music much easier than speak them.

    Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. It's not just a cute saying. It's the truth. It's the cold hard truth. Life may give you a dark chocolate with an un-cracked tree nut in it that will break your teeth. You need to be prepared for anything life throws at you. It can throw some ugly things your way. Be prepared. You're your own ruin if you're not prepared. Do you want to know the truth about life and be so immersed in the present moment, that nothing will surprise you? Google: TruthContest

    I watched the entire movie with tears in my eyes and a very full heart. I grew up with music and have always believed in its unbridled power. My mom is a concert pianist turned teacher; beginning when I was a young child, she took me and the rest of her students to local nursing homes to perform for the residents all the time.

    Today, I am a non-traditional medical student who used to work in business and decided that I wanted to use my life to better the lives of others, to alleviate suffering in whatever way I was capable. The further I get into my medical education, the more I am exposed to the caveats that are realities of today's healthcare system in the United States.

    What you are doing is so simple, yet so effective. Treating people as human beings before treating them as patients is so key to their health and well-being, and you have successfully done this thing that many physicians have not or cannot do. It is beautiful work, and I hope as many people as possible see this wonderful documentary.

    After watching this documentary I've realized our generations choice in music is mostly garbage. All the music played in this documentary has such nice rhythm and soothing sounds. I just don't think it will work the same when I'm old. Like can you imagine us asking for songs like 50 cent, Justin briber, or even Tupac. I don't think it will have as much impact just cuz it won't be so soothing like music from back in the day. Like I just can't imagine playing "thug life" when I'm 80 and it having a soothing effect on me with all the vulgar lyrics and gun shots lollll

I am now working with my sister to put together a music programme for mum of music she likes. Thank you so much for making this. Having a parent slipping away is heart breaking but now we have hope she can still have joy in her life thanks to the knowledge handed out through the work of these wonderful people. I'm not religious but bless you. Many many thanks from our family.

I hope it touches someone's heart today. Even if one person listens to it today then it was worth writing. Its so personal to me… Alzheimer's SUCKS. SUCKS. SUCKS!!!

    It's a good thing that they are doing helping the people that are suffering from dementia using music to put them in a place of remembering there happy times in there life.. ( in my life i've learnt not to cry from a young age But yes i seem to have got something in my eye watching this video.. it reminds me of wen i was around 12/13 years old visiting the mental health word at a hospital – not for me one of my sister's was in the word And for some reason they had a nice woman on the word with dementia wasn't the wright place for her, her husband was there i got talking too them he hadn't had anything to eat and very little to drink at the time So i decided to stay with his wife for a while so that he could go and have something to eat and a cuppa tea me and his wife sat talking about horses she used to bread race horses i used to ride horses i wasn't the best at horse riding never fell off though But it was nice as her husband got to have something to eat a cuppa tea and a catnap in his car and his wife got to relive her happy memories i also got to talk with someone else who had the same interest it aso made me happy that i helped the man have some recuperation time and again help his wife relive her memories

    This documentary moved me in so many ways, I don't even know how to put it into words. What I can say is that if you have ANYONE in your life who has memory loss related to dementia, Alzheimer's, brain injury…. Even someone who is depressed, anxious, despondent… WHATEVER IT MAY BE… this documentary, in living color, shows the power of music in human beings, and the indelible connections that are created (consciously or not) in our brains. Can you think of an occasion where you're walking along and hear a familiar song blasting that takes you back to the summer of '76?? And how that makes you feel? It either triggers an amazing memory and you get all sentimental & warm inside… OR, on the flipside, it can trigger very UN-pleasant memories and makes you shudder. So I guess that is one of the potential downsides of employing the methods that the researchers of this documentary employ. For most people – no matter their age or preferred genre of music – once hearing the music that they once related to can be earth-moving, and life-altering. You won't regret the time spent watching this incredible film. 5 stars, 100% recommend!

    I watched my mom go through the long process of this disease and I can tell you with certainty that the person you knew prior to their slow degenerative process is always there. It's that slight glimmer in their eye or a brief and fleeting recognition. But even as the brain slowly atrophies the very essence of the person does not.
