Intergenerational Interludes

Bringing the young and old together through music

A unique collaboration between DISCOVERY Children’s Museum and Cleveland Clinic Nevada offers young children and elderly folks living with Dementia and Alzheimer’s the chance to connect and grow through music therapy.

Memory care patients and a music therapist from Cleveland Clinic make their way to our museum once a week, where they dance and sing with babies and toddlers. Not only are the activities beneficial for childhood development, but studies actually show music helps improve the memories of people suffering from Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s Disease.

The program was featured on 8 News Now Good Day, which plans to run a bigger piece on Intergenerational Interludes during Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in November.

Our summer sessions of Intergenerational Interludes have come to a close, but we are currently accepting registrants for the fall. The free six-week session begins September 24th. Participants are invited to stay and enjoy the museum after each session concludes.
