WFAA-TV in Dallas recently ran a story about Miss Cora, a 90-year-old woman with dementia who often sits quietly all day–that is until she gets down with her tunes. I tried to embed the video, but I couldn’t get it to work. However, it is well worth an extra click to see this endearing video that shows Miss Cora and her caregiver sharing a connection that only seems to come through music.

  1. Linda, I loved the video. My mother, who has Parkinson’s and the onset of Alzheimer’s loves to listen to music. She also writes and records some of the most beautiful poetry I’ve ever read!

    • Becky, I’m glad you enjoyed the video. You are blessed that your mother has a way of communicating in spite of her illness.Music was one of the last connections we had with Mom.
