Red Carpet World Premier of Hip Hop Memory Care Music Video

Are you ready for the Red Carpet World Premier of the ONLY Hip Hop Memory Care Music Video?

What an amazing way to close out the decade!

New Friends Memory Care has created an innovative “memory care choir” consisting of its residents with memory care issues, called the New Friends Memory Care, “Tic-Toc” Choir and is receiving national attention. Their showcase video is titled, “Don’t Define Me, Just Remind Me.

Musical Director and New Friends and Vibrant Life founder, professional musician, Dean Solden wrote the song for the residents of the community, inspired by their “ferocious will to live and still be themselves, and not be defined by their dementia.”  The music video helps desensitize the concept of people having dementia, especially those with early cognitive or memory care issues. 

This event is our way of celebrating these wonderfully talented seniors.
