      EVENT DETAILS
      Stafford Recreation's AWAKEN MEMORIES WITH MUSIC

      We all have favorite songs that instantly transport us
      back to special times in our lives.

      MUSIC is one of the most effective tools to enhance the lives of patients with dementia. Even patients with advanced dementia benefit from listening to the old familiar songs they loved. They come to life and many speak for the first time in months or years.

      We are looking for DONATIONS OF MEW AND USED IPODS AND MP3 PLAYERS to kick off a community effort to get music into the lives of our neighbors with dementia. With the help of caregivers, volunteers will personalize each player with a patient’s favorite songs. The players will given to the patients to keep and enjoy the benefits every day.

      Players can be dropped off at the following locations:

      The Recreation Office at Town Hall
      260 East Bay Avenue, Manahawkin
      The Bay Avenue Community Center
      775 East Bay Avenue, Manahawkin
      The Pine Street Recreation Building
      25 Pine Street, Manahawkin
