Pickering Manor’s Memory Care receives a $2,500 grant from the Rostair Foundation towards On Demand! music programming for those affected by dementia. The Rostair Foundation currently contributes to a wide range of charities, with a focus on charities that they believe promote peaceful, healthy, and vibrant communities.
Pickering Manor and On Demand! encompass this belief. For over 14 years, On Demand! has been connecting high quality performers and speakers to the Bucks County community and beyond.
Their mission is to create inspiring programs to enrich lives and promote positive change. Additionally, for the past eight years, On Demand! has partnered with the Dementia Society of America to provide programs to enhance the lives of those affected by dementia.
Pickering Manor Memory Care Administrator Meri Luarasi shares, “Our mission is to support our residents’ physical, mental and emotional well-being and encourage them to Live the Life they Love.”
She continues, “Music is an immensely powerful therapy, it can improve behavior, mood, memory, and cognition in those affected by dementia. With this grant, Pickering Manor’s Memory Care can continue to connect our residents affected by dementia with quality performers. This gift is a blessing, we are beyond grateful for the Rostair Foundation’s generosity, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with On Demand!.”
President of On Demand! Program and Events Natalie Kaye concludes, “On Demand! is so grateful for the opportunity to share these talented performers with Pickering Manor to bring enrichment and joy to the lives of the residents there. We understand the healing power of music and are so happy to be part of this healing therapy for the memory care neighborhood.”
