Music & Memory: This Holiday Season, Give the Gift of Music to Someone You Love

Music & Memory: This Holiday Season, Give the Gift of Music to Someone You Love

The holiday season is here! Stephanie Hoffman, TxCCC’s VP of Education and Training serves as a consultant for Music & Memory, a wonderful organization that helps individuals with a wide range of cognitive and physical conditions to engage with the world, ease pain, and reclaim their humanity through the use of personalized music.

Music & Memory wrote a guide last year on how to create a personalized playlist for your loved one for the holidays.

“We recommend connecting online, via video conference or by phone, and working together to discover the music most beloved by the person in your care. To ensure it’s highly personalized for greatest impact, try to find top songs from when they were 15-25 years old. When the playlist is finished, we suggest offering it for 30 minutes at a time as often as is needed or enjoyed. We also suggest offering it proactively before medical appointments or social occasions. For more detailed guidance, please refer to our free guide, How to Make a Personalized Playlist for a Loved One at Home.”

Social distancing doesn’t have to keep us apart this holiday. Our favorite music can keep us together.
