music therapy




  • As people with degenerative dementia lose their language skills, they may feel a sense of isolation. Music therapy can help reduce stress and anxiety, enhance emotional and physical wellbeing through verbal and non-verbal expression, and stimulate cognition.


  • Singing provides patients with an outlet to communicate and express their feelings and enables dialogue.


  • Music therapy can stimulate positive changes in mood, promote interests and encourage patients to interact socially with others.


  • Music therapy can encourage the use of knowledge stored in long-term memory such as lyrics from familiar songs.


  • Group music therapy can be successful in reducing agitation if conducted regularly, utilizing familiar music to improve the wellbeing of those with dementia.
