Special Film Screening of “Alive Inside”

Benton House and Hospice Partners to Host Screening of Film About Effects of Music on Memory

 

Benton House communities along with Hospice Partners, invites the local community to a special screening of the award-winning film “Alive Inside” on the evening of Wednesday, May 24th at 6pm.

This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he demonstrates music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The free screening of “Alive Inside” will take place from 6-8pm at Park Hill High School auditorium located at 7701 NW Barry Rd, Kansas City, MO 64153. We ask that attendees please RSVP to 816.379.3955 as seating is limited.

The screening is open to the entire community as a way to raise awareness of this methodology for enriching the lives of the senior population and celebrate the possibilities this brings for opening long-closed doors in the minds of those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. This is a must-see film for caregivers, healthcare workers, musicians and anyone who would like to learn more about how music affects the brain, especially for those living with memory loss.
