Music class helping Alzheimer's patients, their families

For caregivers of Alzheimer's patients there is a huge sense of relief when they find something that will lift their loved one’s spirits. But if it could also help with their memory issues, that is music to a caregiver’s ears.

A unique music class in Milwaukee is bringing the joy of music to all involved.

Gina Green-Harris, the program director at Milwaukee Outreach Program and Services said, “As the folks sing, we see them light up, we see them actually engaged and we hear stories form the caregivers saying, my mom is singing at home, my dad is doing new words.”
