Today I was with a man who is a namesake of mine. He suffers from aphasia (trouble with forming words that have already formed in your head.) We were talking and gossiping about nurses. Yes, I know who does their job well and who doesn’t.
I asked him what music he liked. Since he lived in Alabama I guessed ‘Country’. ‘No’ was the definitive answer. I suggested to do a youtube search since he owns a laptop.
‘John Mayall – Room to move’ was the song he selected and when it played, for a moment there was no aphasia and he sang every word.
Perhaps a suggestion to music therapy?
He does people’s horoscopes as well. I will indulge and let him do mine, even though I am not into astrology.
