Therapists use music therapy to promote memory and a sense of self in the treatment of older adults with dementia. At Be Our Guest we try and incorporate as much music into our Guests days as possible. Music has a close relationship with unconscious emotions, which are activated by musical movement. These feelings can be strong and meaningful even if patients cannot remember who they are.
Here are some videos courtesy of Joyful Noise Music Therapy that caregivers can do at home with their loved ones.
