This special session describes music’s role for Parkinson’s patients, families/caregivers and the attending staff. In this poignant presentation, Tami shares her personal and professional experiences with this disease – she was a primary caregiver to her dear uncle who had Parkinson’s/dementia; her father also has Parkinson’s. Intertwined with live harp examples, her powerful stories are reflections on the special moments, the sorrows and the lessons learned during the caregiving journey.

In this session, participants will:

  • Learn how the benefits of therapeutic music can be used effectively with Parkinson’s patients.
  • Experience how healing music can help create a sacred environment for those touched by the Parkinson’s disease.
