We have set up a Youtube account where we can access a live performance of a singer from my Mom's generation. i.e. Nat King Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Perry Como.
In addition she watches a great deal of musical DVD movies, again from her era, such as The Eddy Duchin Story, Night & Day, movies with Doris Day and the Sound of Music.
She hums, taps and often can sing along. Her long term memories seem unimpaired. It is hard to believe, but her mood is suddenly uplifted and she actually remembers some of the words.
