The 2018 Wisconsin Idea Seminar is slated to take a trip to the regional Milwaukee office of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute to learn about Milwaukee-based community leaders and Latino and African American families who are partnering around the creation of dementia friendly communities and care in Wisconsin. While visiting, participates can look forward to hearing The Amazing Grace chorus, which includes individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease, as well as their caregivers. The chorus project was created after a chorus program in New York showed that learning songs and singing helped to improve memory and mood.
