Nostalgic songs bring smiles to Willowbrook Place residents

Smiles lit up Willowbrook Place last week when Josh Brookstein played classic tunes by John Denver, Elvis Presley, Simon and Garfunkel, and more.

The joy in the room was palpable as Willowbrook residents, all of whom have Alzheimer’s disease or some form of dementia, sat enthralled, tapping their toes, bobbing their heads and singing along.

“… The power of music is amazing,” said Brookstein, a Broomfield resident who performs at the South Jeffco memory care facility twice a month.
