March 18, 2011 – Music Therapy and Alzheimer’s Disease

This week my guest is Marlon Sobol, a music therapist in New York who created a CD for caregivers to interact with people who have Alzheimer’s. Click here for the archives, or listen on iTunes.

Marlon created a CD to connect caregivers and their clients called, Keep On Moving: Music for Therapeutic Rhythmic Activities. The purpose of this CD is to provide music for the mutual enjoyment of both caregiver and patient. The music can also be used as a tool by the caregiver to facilitate therapeutic rhythmic activities and movement that will enhance the patient’s overall well-being. You can find the music on iTunes by searching for Keep On Moving by Shem’s Disciples or calling 718-519-5880 to order the CD.

You can contact Marlon Sobol, MT-BC, LCAT, for more information at msobol@bethabe.org or call 914-287-7212.

You can get more information about the CD, and his work at Schnurmacher Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing at www.imnf.org.

And you can find information and watch the trailer for the movie we spoke about at The Music Never Stopped.
