Music & Memory …….a $50,000 study from Senior Levy funds

While reviewing the Willoughby-Eastlake Board of Education’s meeting minutes, we noticed a $50,000 receipt from the Lake County Commissioners’ Office, and a subsequent payment to RSVP.  So we went upstream and asked Mr. Jason Boyd, County Administrator, for the details behind the payment.

This is a payment of Senior Levy funds for a  research project started by the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging.  They are trying to determine if listening to familiar music will help dementia patients.
Their website:  http://www.benrose.org/

Here is their public flyer announcing the program:

We received the following progress report prepared by the Institute from Mr. Boyd.    Music & Memory

When we read the report, we could not see any definite conclusion – pro or con.  So we have sent an email to Ms. Silvia Orsulic-Jeras (Principal Investigator), and asked her what did the Lake County taxpayers get for the $50,000 that was spent from the Senior Levy funds.

We will let you know if we hear from the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging.  If we do not hear within 1 – 2 weeks, we will go back to the Commissioners’ office.
