Music has the power to bring back special memories and feelings to those suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia.  Carol has been performing for this special segment of the population since 2011 and has found it to be her calling.  She performs at many Vermont assisted living centers and also in private homes.  Music therapy is tremendously helpful with dementia.  Carol is certified in the Music & Memory program and the recipient of the 2016 VHCA Activity Assistant of the Year Award, specifically in part for her work in the Music & Memory Program.  Carol became a Master Trainer in the Best Friends Approach to Dementia Care in 2019.  In 2020 Carol became a certified End of Life Doula and has held space with dozens of souls and provided comfort and music during their transition.

Carol performs regularly at Vermont assisted living communities.  She also does house calls!  Please contact Carol at to coordinate Carol visiting your loved one to share music and memories!  Also, check out the American Folk Song Sing-along with Carol Ann Jones on Youtube to do your own guided sing-along with your loved one.

She has created a moving, one-woman show of storytelling and music called "The Power of Music: Twelve Souls in Song" which she has committed to perform in every county in the State of Vermont. So far, it has been seen in Franklin, Lamoille, Grand Isle, Chittenden and Caledonia Counties.  Proceeds from the show benefit Music & Memory, Inc.  To date, $10,001 has been raised for this amazing program that creates customized ipods for patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. 

Carol intends to continue this show in more counties once COVID-19 restrictions have lifted.
