I Will Remember For You - A Tribute to Families Facing Alzheimer's
Oh the places you used to go,
All the people you used to know,
The stories that you loved to tell
About a life that you lived so well.
It’s fine, you can rest if you want to.
I will remember for you,
I will remember too.
Music is just a story with a melody. The song “I Will Remember for You” played in the video to the right tells the story of a couple touched by Alzheimer’s disease. It was written and performed by former Home Instead staff member Dave Mainelli, and is inspired by all the families they have met who are keeping the memories alive for loved ones experiencing memory loss. Music powerfully communicates emotion and narrative, making it an excellent tool to evoke memories for those living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.

Beautiful…. now I’m crying…my mom always tells me she can’t remember anything and always ask for my dad who passed three years ago. Now I know how I will answer her, “I will remember for you!”
So beautifully touching and so sad….
This is beautiful. Thank you, Dave, and thank you, Home Instead, for sharing this.
That was beautiful..
That was beautiful. I was very touched.
What a beautiful and touching video. Tears of hope that their will someday be a cure .
This song is so touching. It made me cry looking at my dad thinking of the amazing person he was and the life he lived. It gets right to the heart of this disease and how a loved one feels and cherishes the memories. Their life made a difference and even when they cant remember we remember. I want it sung at my dads memorial service when he passes. Where can I get the lyrics and cords?
This is so beautifully written and absolutely heartfelt by anyone who has ever lost or is caring for someone living with Alzheimer’s.
“I will remember for you” is a wonderful song, beautiful video, and perfect response to my mom’s questions!!
