Sing me a Memory: Music Therapy in Eldercare

January 14, 2020



Music can be a powerful and cost effective tool for maintaining health for elderly individuals. From elder choirs of individuals with dementia and their caregivers to music listening programs, music therapy may be used to promote relaxation, reduce pain, alter mood, maintain or improve physical abilities, stimulate memory recall, and more. We will discuss music therapy and how it may be effectively utilized in eldercare. This webinar will explore the research about music, and specifically music therapy, as a treatment modality for seniors intermixed with personal vignettes from this practitioner’s ten-year career as a music therapist in senior living.
