THE STORY:

Support the Songs for Seniors program and help bring personalized music to nursing home residents at A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab, one of Atlanta's oldest nonprofits and most trusted leaders in senior care. 


Your gifts to A.G. Rhodes Songs for Seniors support the Music Therapy Department and cover the costs of iPods, downloadable music and headsets.        

Numerous benefits are associated with music, especially for seniors living with dementia or with other cognitive and physical challenges.The longest lasting memories that people have are often musical memories, and listening to familiar music helps people recall past experiences.    


The Songs for Seniors program at A.G. Rhodes promotes the incorporation of music into many areas of the day. A key component of the program is the use of iPods with songs tailored for individual residents to enjoy.   


Music can stimulate the brain, increase cardiovascular strength and energy levels, improve respiratory function, create opportunities to communicate and bond, and provide avenues for creative expression.  Additionally, music therapy can slow the decline of cognitive skills; improve one’s mood; reduce depression, stress, and anxiety; increase involvement in activities; and lessen feelings of loneliness.


For nearly 115 years, A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab has provided high-quality healthcare to seniors in metro Atlanta, including therapy and rehabilitation services, short-term recovery, and long-term care.  Through innovative programs like Songs for Seniors, A.G. Rhodes is improving the quality of life for more than 1,100 seniors in our community each year.
