The Alive Inside APP
[Questionnaire and Tips!]


Welcome Detectives!

Let’s bring Memory and Identity back to our elders through their music and your human connection. Music affects the brain and body unlike anything else - it accesses multiple parts of the brain, and miraculously the ability to feel music stays strong, almost to the end. Music and Human Connection are unparalleled and often ignored tools for restoring memory and identity. As Alive Inside Detectives you will help your elder "re-member" their deepest music and you will do this- sharing your presence and caring energy. Our goal is not just to wake memories but also to be “Alive Inside” together in the here and now. Click here to bring this "Alive Inside" journey to your Community!

Here's our video tutorial for the Alive Inside App, which can be found here -
