What is B Sharp?

B Sharp was launched in 2015 and provided 30 people with dementia and their primary caregiver the opportunity to attend five Fort Collins Symphony Masterworks concerts during the 2015-16 season. The study explored a number of factors, including the impact of the music on the cognitive ability of participants with dementia, the social connections between the caregiver and person with dementia, and the degree to which study participants feel supported by the community.  

Attending dementia friendly community events helped caregivers feel connected to their loved one, other caregivers, and enjoy a night out.
