Meet my friend Brian.
Brian is a musician and a music lover, a public speaker, an advocate, and all around fun guy.
Brian has Early-onset Alzheimer’s. (So do about 200,000 other Americans.)
Thankfully, organizations such as the Dementia Action Alliance, Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care and others understand how important it is to hear from, interact with and learn from people who are actually living with dementia. So that’s how I met Brian.
Last June I had the opportunity to present a session at the Dementia Action Alliance Conference. The title: Music: From Entertainment to Engagement. Brian was my co-presenter.
I’m thrilled that this video has been made, giving Brian the opportunity to share his story about the power of music in his life.
Brian’s voice is an important one. I hope you will take just a few minutes to meet Brian and learn from him.
