MusicWorks uses music as a way to bring elders and volunteers/friends together. Recently, Liz, an elder living in an assisted living home asked to be matched with a MusicWorks volunteer. She had moved from her longtime home within the last few months, having given up many of her beloved belongings. Liz missed her collection of music, and she was feeling homesick. She also was a little blue about not connecting with people who knew her as a person, not a patient or resident or even as an older person.
