Cleveland Heights Library Lee Road Branch Memory Cafe

Thursday, December 14th, 1:00pm – 2:30pm

Music can be one of the best sources to bring back memories of

those suffering from Alzheimer’s/dementia. The recall is known as “music-invoked autobiographical memory”. Programs presented by the Carolyn L. Farrell Foundation for Brain Health are centered around music and the arts. On Thursday, December 14th, we offer an example of the joy of music by singing familiar songs from different ethnicities as we explore December’s holidays. Holiday cookies will complete this programs festive mood. Nadine Kodysz, Professional Violinist, will lead the program.

Please contact the Library to pre-register for the program.
