Port Howe singer/songwriter Christina Martin has partnered with the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia to release a song a week for the month of January, Alzheimer Awareness Month in Canada. These special, one-of-a-kind songs are the products of an artist-in-residency Christina participated in a few years ago with Dr. Kenneth Rockwood, Dalhousie Geriatric Medical Research and the Canadian Dementia Knowledge Translation Network (CDKTN).
To accompany the release of each song, Christina asked for Nova Scotians to submit stories and photos of their experience with dementia.
The first song, "Remember Me", and a story is released today:
If you would like to participate, Christina is accepting stories until January 15.
