Music & Memory is Expanding in TX

Now Accepting Nominations for NFs to Become Certified in Phase VI of Music & Memory

HHSC is expanding the Music & Memory initiative to an additional 200 nursing homes through 2020. Now’s your chance to participate. Nominate your facility for Phase VI of the program by completing this survey.

HHSC will select 80 facilities for Phase VI. Nominations will close on March 20.

The nationally recognized Music & Memory initiative builds on research showing the positive effects of familiar music on brain activity. The program has also been shown to reduce the use of antipsychotic medications in nursing facilities.

Since 2015, 550 facilities across Texas have participated in the HHSC Music & Memory program. By the end of 2020, over 10,000 nursing home residents will have been impacted by this innovative program.
