Club 36 Music & Memory program
Alzheimer Society of Calgary

Music has the unique ability to transport us and capture moments in time. That song comes on and suddenly you can hear the swish of your dress on your wedding day, the scent of your new baby, or the view from the top of the Ferris wheel.

Music is a powerful medium that has a tremendous impact on our lives and particularly for those living with dementia. The Alzheimer Society of Calgary is thrilled to introduce music to the Club 36 Adult Day program. This program will provide personalized music for members of Club.

Research shows, music can help stimulate memories in people living with dementia. The program will enable the members to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories. 

The staff at the Alzheimer Society of Calgary has completed training for the music program from the non-profit organization Music & Memory. Over the coming months, Club 36 will begin to implement the program.
