Lakeview Ranch has recently been the recipient of a great donation and membership of a great cause! A fantastic organization known as Alive Inside Foundation has connected music and those who have dementia. Often times caregivers will say that those who have dementia tend to really gravitate toward music and in fact, will remember all of the lyrics to songs as well as their melodies.
Alive Inside provides headphones and a specialized program that creates playlists specifically generated for seniors and those with dementia. Therefore, residents at Lakeview Ranch will each (because of our wonderful donors) have their own headphones with specific music playlist that is generated based on their likes, age group, experiences, etc.
We graciously thank a group of local residents who donated money for this specific cause. We also thank Alive Inside with all of their work and dedication for those with memory loss. See the information below about Alive Inside:

At The Alive Inside Foundation we believe Music and Human Connection have wisdom for all of us. Music’s gift is more than just headphones on elders. Music is an “Empathy Revolution,” and was invented by humans to bring together community. AIF wants an “Empathy Revolution” in eldercare and education, while also creating a more “dementia aware” culture. The increase in loneliness and the decrease in empathy in our culture is wrong and must be reversed. AIF provides a forum for the creation of open-source education and tools, in service of a more empathetic future, a future where aging and growing up are humane!
Alive Inside Goals:
- Change the way aging is viewed and wisdom transference is experienced.
- Inspire youth to find value in aging and in connection with elders.
- Inspire the finding of purpose for youth.
- Fight an epidemic of loneliness, boredom, and disconnection in both Elders and youth.
- Improve communities and create space for sustainable core values.
- Create and Implement “CommUniversity” models for Eldercare.
