The video in that link is the most heartwarming thing I’ve seen in a long long time. Amazing.
Thanks for posting this Bones, very touching stuff.
Watch the entire video.

I can't see it without allowing ads but I'm fairly familiar with that facet of memory and dementia.
Visiting a nicer alzheimers facility I med a codger with a fiddle he'd forgotten how to tune.
Tuned it up for him and he happily went dancing off playing Danny Boy.
Thanks for this post Bones.
In September 2019 I started playing a regular weekly solo gig at a local care home where about 75% of the residents have some form of Alzheimer's or Dementia. I play instrumentals to backing tracks from the late 50's and early 60's. It's reassuring to know that my 1 hour sessions each week might be doing some good. The care home have given me an open ended regular weekly booking for every Thursday afternoon.
My Father has had Alzheimer's for around 14 years (so he's doing really well).
His short term memory is zero. He doesn't take in anything new.
But, he loves music. He has CD's, DVD's, cassettes & records (even 78's).
He recognises all his favourite songs & sings, & claps along, to many of them.
He even plays a mean harmonica.
The brain is a weird weird place. Thanks for posting that.
Unfortunately my Dad was never a music lover so he couldnt even get relief from that either. Man, the last 2 or three years he had were just awful
