Want to see something that will LIFT YOUR SPIRITS? The "issue" here is elderly care.

(You have to have an "issue" to post in this forum, so I'm making my issue clear from the git-go)

The hook is the POWER of MUSIC to improve their lives.

I love this clip--six minutes of grace, love, joy and humanity:

1. Thank you for posting, MADem.

I lost both my parents last year; in the months before their deaths, music was one of the few things that could take them away from the pain (my mum) and the sorrow (my dad, missing my mum) for a little while.


This is a lovely video. It made me cry - in a good way.

11. That man had a fine voice--still. You can tell he loves music and was quite a talented

singer in his younger years.

When ya run out of kleenex, a sleeve will do!

10. I am not much of a lounge denizen.

I might pop in on the odd thread, but for the most part, when I look in there, I feel like the awkward new kid in the corner who doesn't get the jokes and the innuendos. I think the people who frequent that place enjoy it and they probably don't need my farty old-school comments screwing up their riffs!

If you think folks in that forum will enjoy this, send 'em over for a look! I thought it was a useful commentary on the power of music and the importance of maintenance of quality of life for seniors even in their very advanced years--nothing like a little music therapy to get the heart (and the voice) singing.

12. Farty old school comments are always welcome.



When the D3 preview was open some time back you could embed stuff in the lounge too.
That's what I meant to do.

It's a wonderful commentary.

15. I have no prejudices! I am just leery of ruining the party!

Nothing worse than the "dork who doesn't get it" stinking up the riff! I'll poke my head in every now and again!

I think we still can embed stuff in the lounge--I know we can in other forums; I just thought this one was as good a fit as any.

13. Thanks SO much for posting this, MADem...

Wonderful testament to the truth that Hindu sages discovered milleniums ago--music and sound heal us both physically and psychically.

14. I am one of those old farts who loves the idea of music and arts in the schools, along w/phys ed

I don't think those kinds of programs are "wastes of money" at all. Get the mind working, get the body working, express yourself!

Those Hindu sages were called sages for a good reason, eh?

16. So true, MA...music, art, and physical expression

are a major part of what defines us as humans.

Any educational curriculum worthy of the name should include these disciplines and give them equal emphasis along with the "academic" subjects.

How can anyone claim to be "educated" without at least a rudimentary knowledge of our common culture?

7. Thank you for that.

 

MY Mom is in an Alz. unit. I have been using the iPad to write to her. She can read quite well but her hearing isn't up to par.

I will use the iPad to play some Gene Autry for her on Youtube tomorrow.

8. Have you tried earphones? Sometimes the hearing improves without distractions, and the earphones

can help reduce the other sounds. I would go for something bigger than those pesky ear-buds, something like we see on the YT clip.
