Dementia & Alzheimer's Disease

We work with those living with dementia and Alzheimer's disease towards goals including: 

  • Emotional expression and social engagement 

  • Maintaining verbal abilities

  • Cognitive stimulation

  • Reducing challenging behaviours

We use interventions such as:

  • Singing familiar music

  • Instrument playing

  • Improvisation

  • Receptive music listening

 

We can also work in a family therapy model to include a partner, children, and caregiver in the music therapy sessions.
