JF&CS on WBUR

Posted by Kathy Burnes

WBUR logoI heard the Radio Boston story about a man with Alzheimer’s who sings with the Tremble Clefs choral group for people with Parkinson’s disease that Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JF&CS) runs in the community. I’ve also been following the Fade to Darkness stories, several of which have highlighted the role that music plays in people’s lives. I am someone for whom singing is central to my life. I’m involved with the JF&CS arts-based programming for people and their families dealing with chronic disease. The recent series on WBUR confirms that JF&CS plans to expand its singing and dancing programs will be key to helping people find joy while living with and managing chronic disease.”
