An intergenerational choir of college students and those with dementia and their family caregivers changes perceptions about the disease
Having college students and older adults with Alzheimer's sing together can change younger choir members' perceptions of dementia and reduce social isolation in those with the disease and their family caregivers. These are the findings of a pilot study conducted last spring at the John Carroll University in Ohio. (The study will be published this April in the American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias.)
