Music And Memory – Changing Lives In Memphis

The Music & Memory Program continues to grow in popularity and effectiveness in more Signature facilities!

MUSIC & MEMORY℠ is a non-profit organization that brings personalized music into the lives of the elderly or infirm through digital music technology, vastly improving quality of life. By training nursing home staff and other elder care professionals, as well as family caregivers, how to create and provide personalized playlists using iPods and related digital audio systems, the Music & Memory team enable those struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories.

Recently an amazing story was published telling how at SHC’s Memphis facility, the Music & Memory program enabled a mother and daughter to reconnect after severe dementia had closed off so many other communication channels for years.

You can read the entire article HERE how the Chaplain at Memphis, using Music & Memory, was able to bring connectivity back to this special relationship.

Spirituality Activated: A Solution – Scripture Tool For Clinical Partnerships

Scripture Tool for Clinical Partnerships

Signature Spirituality has created an online tool to provide everyone access to scripture quotations specially selected to apply to all manner of clinical conditions in order to assist in bringing forth real and positive outcomes in the overall health and well-being of those in our care. 

In order to provide a method of utilizing the healing power of scripture in deconstructing suffering and changing outcomes, this special tool was designed to help both the Clinical and the Rehab teams complement their great work to further activate healing in interventions and care plans solving the clinical issues that we face every day.

The eight categories link to almost 100 unique scripture passages that are specifically designed to affect clinical measures like pain management, anxiety and depression, weight loss, psychotropic medication reduction and many others.

The Scripture Tool can be accessed online anywhere in the world and can be found in the Spirituality Pillar section of the Signature corporate website at
