Our live program sessions take place in person at your care facility. We cater to all members of the community, but specialize in catering to Enliven Units all over Los Angeles County. Our musical team is comprised of musicians highly sought out in the music industry, with a passion for music as a healing intervention. A singer and pianist or guitarist team (vaccinated and healthy) will perform in your community room or garden tailoring a 45 minute interactive music, movement, story, and trivia experience. Songs and theme requests can be made to customize the session to your community's needs. Every session has some familiar and some new songs in a variety of styles and genres to stimulate brain activity. Our musicians are Alzheimer's and Dementia certified by the NCCDP (National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners) and our programs are overseen by a licensed music therapist. The goals of our weekly sessions are to address emotional regulation, cognitive prowess, to stimulate thoughts and memories, improve circulation and respiratory function through movement and singing, and establish psychobiological brain states of curiosity and joy. Despite the level of brain impairment or severity of dementia, musical memories remain present in the limbic system and are resistant to decline. People participating in meovent and musical activities may not be able to know who you are or tell you what year it is but they will be able to sing you a song from their childhood and access memories and feelings from that association. These activities that were learned and engrained in adolescence and young adulthood remain in their memory. Our programs specialize in limbic system intervention and regulation. Ultimately, our aim is to reduce stress, improve healing, facilitate the return of motor coordination, provide and re-enforce a sense of social bonding, community and activate the HOME circuit (Human Oxytocin Mediated Empathy) leaving our participants with a lasting feeling of well being and comfort.
