In this episode you will hear a story of love and passion and the healing power of music. You will be moved and amazed by this show.
Carol Rosenstein is the Founder & Executive Director of Music Mends Minds–a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that creates musical support groups for patients with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and PTSD. These musical support groups foster a community between the musicians and singers, as well as their families, friends, and caregivers, all of whom thrive on socialization and music-making.
