Music is proven to help in the wellbeing of one’s physical and mental health. It has the ability to sooth and heal even the most damaging injuries. And this 92-year-old man, Henry Dryer, knows this better than anyone.
Henry has spent the last 10 years of his life in a nursing home. His loved ones watched him fade away right before his eyes because of dementia. Even when the staff at the nursing home did their best, Dryer was unresponsive.
Usually when Dementia patients listen to songs, they can hardly remember anything at all. But, this is not the case for Henry. He comes alive as soon as he listens to his favorite song. The song seems to bring him back to his youth.
