About Jasmin Uglow & Humanity in Music
Jasmin Uglow is a Canadian musician and the founder of the non-profit organization, Humanity in Music. Jasmin has been personally touched by Alzheimer’s as her father was diagnosed and passed away from dementia. After his passing, Jasmin took her and her father’s shared bond of music and gained renewed meaning for their passions. Through her challenges as a full-time caregiver, she recognized the extraordinary, positive effects music has on patients and caregivers alike.
She hopes that through her music and Humanity in Music, she can encourage Canadians to give back, support musical efforts, and make a change for those impacted by dementia now, and in the future.

Women in Song is a trio of women: Lois O'Hanley Jones, Debbie Rivard and Patty Dunlop. We are 3 retired women from Blind River ON who, during this pandemic, realized a lifelong dream and recorded a debut album with 13 original songs. We have been together for over 20 years and have raised over $20,000 for local charities. Our debut single called But I Knew Her When, is a song we wrote about Alzheimers. Patty's mom passed away from the disease and I am primary caregiver to my mom who is in the last stages of the disease. This song has resonated with people. We write about our children, parents and topics that people can relate to. In our sixties, we have ticked something meaningful off our bucket list. People have told us that this album, called "Life of a Woman" is an homage to women and has brought them joy!
