Our Impact

We provide music based programs to seniors living in care facilities where we curate personalized playlists for each participant. We connect each participant with one of our program facilitators who listens to the music with them, in an effort to elicit moments of lucidity and reconnect them with positive memories associated with their past.

  • Visit more than 160 seniors every week
  • Created more than 8,500 interactions throughout last year
  • Facilitated more than 4,400 hours of programming
