The Power of Music (video)

Music can be a powerful source of joy, comfort and inspiration in our lives. People living with dementia and their family members attest to the important role music has in their lives. Research, some of it proudly sponsored by the Alzheimer Society, confirms this.

The Alzheimer Society created the video, "When words fail, music speaks" to show the positive impact of music. This video, released at the Alzheimer's Disease International Conference in March 2011, in Toronto, won a 2011 Telly Award for best online video at the 32nd annual Telly Awards.
