Reflections Program at The GreenFields

Reflections

Reflections is a recording of a conversation between two individuals; the interviewer and the resident, or storyteller. This program offers residents of The GreenFields a chance to tell their unique story and share who they are and where they came from. Resident storytellers also have the opportunity to reveal and record their hopes and dreams with those they love – because every story matters!

Music and Memory

Music and Memory is a program that allows residents at The GreenFields who are suffering from various forms of dementia to play music from their past. In turn, this helps to boost cognitive skills and reduces the need for certain medications. Research shows that music improves the retrieval of stored memory, and when participants listen to music, they become more engaged with their surroundings, more social and begin to remember more.
