The Power of Music
for people living with dementia and those who care for them
Music is a wonderful connector and has the ability to bring people together in the here and now. It can enliven, stimulate and enable people living with dementia to express themselves creatively through musical engagement.
Research shows that music can help reduce the often distressing symptoms of dementia, such as agitation, apathy and anxiety.
There is a part of us that lives in the music that we danced and partied to in our youth. Instantly we remember those golden moments of the Forties, Fifties, Sixties, Seventies and Eighties.
