Our 2019 Summer News celebrates a collaboration with LITA Music volunteers and two compassionate and creative doctos,
Emily Carter and Jennifer Tsang, who prctice at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center. They have launched a Music as Medicine Program with the enthusiastic support of LITA of Contra Costa.
LITA served for free as local boots on the ground during the 3 year CAHF Medicare funded study ( ended 2017) that again proved the powerful benefits for disabled seniors in care who get their personal favorite music on iPod, and participate in “sing-alongs”. LITA will continue to provide all this and more to staff at CCRMC and half a dozen SNF, as we support facility bound residents by discovering and providing them personal music on iPod. We can use all donated iPhones & iPads. currently we are supporting
iPods and iPads for residents at Windsor Rosewood Manor care in Pleasant Hill, and Greenridge Senior Care in El Sobrante. We look forwrd to revitalizing our long standing iPod program at Legacy Nursing and Rehab in Martinez after a long period of frequent Activity staff turnovers. Praying that all remain safe and are able to transition as needed to serve our senior communy.
Your donations to LITA improve the quality of life for a growing number of increasingly isolated persons living in skilled nursing facilities. SNF budgets for stimulating activities are continuously cut. That’s why delivery of LITA’s services are invaluable.
Our world seems so full of violence and heartlessness. But you can make a difference one soul at a time. Give generously
to help us show that Love really is the Answer.
With sincere gratitude,
LITA of Contra Costa Dir
