“Memory Lane with Jeff” Expands Senior Living Community’s Programming Focusing on Cognitive Skills
Hearing a certain song has a way of bringing back fond memories like that first kiss, wedding day dance, or even an afternoon in the neighborhood candy shop. No one knows that better than Jeff Sherer, the creator of “Memory Lane with Jeff,” a 90-minute music therapy program held monthly for residents of The Atrium at The Allendale Community for Mature Living. During the program, this dedicated volunteer plays compilations that he has recorded from his extensive vinyl LP albums and CD collection of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s “pop” and then facilitates animated group discussions.
