Music & Memory Program

LindenGrove Communities in Waukesha & Mukwonago have the distinction of being certified in the Wisconsin Music & Memory program

Two LindenGrove Communities Locations Are Certified in the Music & Memory Initiative

LindenGrove Communities in Waukesha and Mukwonago are certified by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to participate in the Music & Memory Initiative. Staff has been trained in creating personalized playlists for residents with dementia. Listening to favorite music through the use of iPods has been found to trigger memories and improve temperament. LindenGrove in Waukesha was one of 100 skilled nursing facilities throughout the state to join this Music & Memory Initiative in Phase One. LindenGrove in Mukwonago earned its certification in Phase Two, along with only 147 other nursing homes in the state.

Ken, a former memory care home resident in Waukesha, and his wife Beth were featured in a Fox 6 story on the positive affects of the Music & Memory program. See the news segment here.
