I just came across this documentary on Netflix. Dan Cohen a social worker fights against a broken health care system and uses music to unlock memory in nursing home patients with AD. This film was reality based as far as the lack of care for dementia in nursing homes, the great difficulty and politics of implementing just a modicum of change in nursing home treatment of dementia. Also about ordinary everyday people and their dilemma of being placed in nursing homes. Very interesting the way in which music is stored and memorized in our brain and emotions.
