Gonna Do A Little Music is one of thirteen titles in the Respite Video Collection. This unique group of videos was designed to capture and maintain the attention of those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia through music, light movement, and the recollection of fond memories. The caregiver, in turn, is able to enjoy short periods of “respite” or time away from the challenges of giving care.
This continues to be on of our bestselling products. The collection is one of the first products ever designed specifically to help care for people with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Many of my cognitively impaired residents never get tired of this DVD. Depending on their levels of ability they sing along, verbally respond to questions, follow cues for movement. For a number of mid-stage dementia clients it captures and holds their
attention like nothing else. They smile, they laugh and forget everything around them. One of my most challenging residents breaks into a smile every time she hears Marianne’s greeting to the viewer’s/listener’s. Even the visually impaired enjoy this DVD.
