Music For Dementia Grant

“Our local Rotary Club of Murray Bridge, has used the project “Music for Dementia” under the guidance of Director Lyn Sickerdick, to seek out people in our community who are effected by the onset of dementia. This Project has been successful in finding recipients for the specially designed headsets with an inbuilt selection of music. Reports of how well this initiative has improved the well being of many who have used this music therapy, has led to a request for Rotarian Roger Wickes to seek further funds for this Project through Flinders University. A grant of $2000.00 is the outcome, and this will be used to extend the “Music for Dementia” service to many more deserving recipients.”
