Parker on Madison Offers Music Program at Adult Social Day Care

Center features stimulating activities in nurturing environment

Hempstead, NY, August 8, 2019 ­– Parker on Madison Social Adult Day Care ­- a unique caregivers’ respite program through Parker Jewish Institute for memory-impaired and frail elderly – is providing new monthly music offerings for participants.

Research suggests that music is particularly beneficial for people struggling with memory loss. Studies have shown that music therapy can naturally reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety, relieve stress and boost one’s creativity. Music therapy can also prompt memory recollection and improve communication between participants, their caregivers, and others in their life.

Participants at Parker on Madison enjoy monthly live music sessions from John Bracco, who has spent more than 25 years working in senior health care. Mr. Bracco’s “around the world” approach features music from across the globe, helping to stimulate memory and elicit memory recall. Mr. Bracco’s open-mic technique fosters an environment in which participants are encouraged to express themselves artistically.

“The participants and staff at Parker on Madison are simply easy to work with,” Mr. Bracco said.

“Music is a universal language and the music program at Parker on Madison provides our participants with an activity that can be appreciated by all,” said Michael N. Rosenblut, Parker’s president and CEO.

Parker on Madison offers a unique Social Adult Day Care center for the frail, elderly and memory-impaired while providing relief and support to caregivers and families. The center’s professional staff provides a caring and nurturing environment.
