Park Ridge Care in Shoreline

Park Ridge Care Center is one of many skilled nursing facilities that has gone the extra mile for their patients through the use of a new program called Music and Memory. This program involves a methodic approach to music and has shown a positive increase in memory recall, general cognition, and all-around connectivity to those who use it.

Music and Memory is a non-profit organization that is dedicated, first and foremost, to the education of both staff and caregivers of residents of elderly facilities. Curriculum includes teaching the process of downloading and managing personalized music with popular audio technology. Most of the residents that benefit from such education suffer from Alzheimer’s or other degradative diseases.

“We are excited about the changes coming to Park Ridge,” said Rosemary Lavery, RN, Director of Admissions. “We will be instigating a program that we believe will help our residents break free from the chains of chemical restraints more easily. Everyone knows how music can make people feel alive. Our goal is to increase the dignity of patients that use our facility, and we know and trust the science behind this inspired program.”

Orientation and courses for the program begin on October 15, 2015, for the Park Ridge staff. To find out more about what is going on at Park Ridge Care Center, go to, call 206-363-5856, or email Rosemary. Learn more about the Music and Memory program here.

Park Ridge is located at 1250 NE 145th St, Shoreline, WA 98155, 206-363-5856.
