Music: An Old Art Form and a New Therapy

As part of our holistic approach to homecare, we provide music therapy to our clients. Music therapy is a great alternative care option for your loved one diagnosed with dementia. It is an excellent option for all older adults because of its many health benefits, which is why we offer both free and paid services. There is a special connection between music and the elderly, and the benefits of music therapy for older adults helps to promote an improved quality of life. We design our programs around your family to help reconnect your loved one with meaningful memories of life experiences.

Music stimulates memory by helping older adults to focus their thoughts; hearing a familiar song can spark memories which is an effective way of helping older adults with dementia. Dancing while singing along to a favorite song is an engaging way to improve speech, social skills, and physical activity. We incorporate slower songs to help our clients to relax, reduce stress, relieve symptoms of depression, and prepare for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Music therapy helps:
  • Stress

How music therapy works:
  • Our certified Music and Memory care team experts meet with your family to assess your loved one’s needs.
  • We design a customized playlist and the music is uploaded into a music player (mp3).
  • Instructions are provided to your family, client, and the care team members.
  • Your loved one receives the music player and headphones, then the music therapy process begins.
