A couple uses music to help with Alzheimer’s

We profile a couple who find each other through music — as the husband slowly deteriorates from Alzheimer’s. His wife, a former choir and piano teacher, is able to maintain the connection with her husband of nearly 50 years through a groundbreaking program between Banner Alzheimer’s Institute and the Musical Instrument Museum. They share their touching story of using music to recall moments from the past while still holding on to the present — before all of his memory is gone.
