GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Nathaniel Witherell recently received a $2,000 donation from the Greenwich-based Needs Clearing House for the skilled nursing and short-term rehab center's Alzheimer's music program.
“It feels wonderful to be able to do something to help people feel better. In particular, people who are suffering greatly from this disease,” said NCH Co-Founder Joe Kaliko in a press release.
The Witherell program helps reduce anxiety in Alzheimer’s patients, as it can shift mood, manage stress and stimulate positive interactions, according to a press release.
If you would like to contribute to the Alzheimer's music program, please contact Scott Neff at email@example.com.
