Songs by Heart

Magical Music Program Strikes a Chord with People with Memory Loss

Bob Perkowitz, age 88, has a song in his heart every Thursday afternoon. That’s when he joins his wife of 60-plus years, Jean, for Songs by Heart at Aspired Living of Prospect Heights, located at 708 North Elmhurst Road.

“It’s the highlight of the week for both of us,” said Bob, who lives in Prospect Heights while Jean lives at the memory support community, where Bob faithfully visits daily. “Jean doesn’t respond to much, but Songs by Heart really lights her up. She sings and claps. It’s wonderful to see.”
