Music Therapy Discussion

Families care deeply about their loved ones’ well-being in nursing homes— not only for their health and safety, but also for their quality of life. In fact, 83% of families looking for a nursing home responded that they would favor one that offers personalized music. Now, Green House Living for Sheridan has become a certified Music and Memory community! A generous gift donated by Marion (Muff) Niedringhaus has helped us to sponsor this training for our staff, family members and volunteers. About 15 people from GHLS became certified through a three day training event, including Shahbazim, family members, nurses and members of administration. We were able to purchase a laptop needed to compile countless songs and playlists to put on iPod shuffles. A news release from Canyon Creek Memory Care Community explains, “The program uses music to help recover memories, stimulate recognition and enhance quality of life… According to research, the therapeutic benefits of music can provide not only comfort and enjoyment, but also reduce isolation, anxiety and agitation... (It) reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and how its healing power can triumph where prescription medication falls short.” So far, we have 14 iPod shuffles to load with stimulating and life-giving music. If you are interested in donating a used iPod Shuffle, money for music or an iTunes gift card, get in touch with us. We’d love to keep growing our program!

ABOUT GREEN HOUSE LIVING

Creating loving homes where individuals live dignified, fulfilling lives
supported by quality care, personal choice and positive relationships

OUR STORY

 

In 2005, the vision to build Green House cottages in Sheridan grew out of the wish of Sheridan caregivers who wanted something better for their loved ones. It progressed through a community needs assessment, partnership with the City of Sheridan, and the creation of a nonprofit legal entity called Alternative Elder Living, Inc. (AEL). Sheridan is the first community in the nation to create Green House homes through the will of committed and passionate citizens that believed in the mission:

Creating loving homes where individuals live dignified, fulfilling lives supported by quality care, personal choice and positive relationships.


Through the generosity of the Sheridan community with donations of over $3,000,000 and a USDA loan of $5.2 million, the four cottages have been built and are a home to many elders.

Alternative Elder Living, Inc. a 501(c )(3) organization dba Green House Living for Sheridan is a part of the national Green House Project. The national movement envisions homes in every community where:

  • Elders and others enjoy excellent quality of life and quality of care
  • They, their families, and the staff engage in meaningful relationships built on equality, empowerment, and mutual respect
  • People want to live and work
  • All are protected, sustained, and nurtured without regard to the ability to pay

There are currently Green House homes in 33 states. Go to the www.thegreenhouseproject.org to find Green House homes throughout the U.S.
