Title: Music Therapy Benefits For Elderly

Can Music Therapy Benefit the Elderly?
  • From seniors who are experiencing depression due
    to a recent medical diagnosis to those receiving
    dementia home care in Plantation , music therapy
    has numerous benefits for the elderly. As part of
    a treatment plan, music can help promote various
    aspects of your loved ones emotional, cognitive,
    and physical health.

Music Therapy For Seniors
It Reduces Stress and Agitation
  • Your loved one may experience stress as a result
    of his or her medical conditions, financial
    problems, medical treatments, or family
    disagreements. Listening to music can help soothe
    your loved one and reduce this stress. Sometimes
    seniors receiving Plantation Alzheimer's care can
    become agitated due to their inability to
    communicate, but music therapy has been shown to
    reduce this agitation and promote calm feelings.

It Boosts Cognition
  • Hearing a familiar song can bring up memories and
    feelings from the past. With the help of music
    therapy, your loved one can preserve important
    memories and process his or her thoughts. A 2000
    study found seniors with dementia, including
    those who were no longer able to communicate,
    responded positively when songs that were a part
    of their earlier lives were played.

It Helps with Communication
  • Seniors who participate in music therapy can make
    decisions faster, speak more clearly, and answer
    questions better. A study done by researchers at
    Willamette University in 2000 found music therapy
    is effective in slowing down the loss of
    communication skills that can occur in the
    elderly. Additionally, seniors with Alzheimer's
    who have lost the ability to communicate can
    often still hum or sing songs from their past
    when music is played.

It Inspires Movement and Exercise
  • Music can inspire inactive seniors to move their
    bodies and get some exercise, increasing their
    circulation and helping them manage their weight.
    Even some seniors who use wheelchairs can tap
    their feet and move their arms in time to the
    music, which can help keep them physically

Listening To Music
  • Though listening to music can be a fun and
    creative way to boost your loved ones health,
    there are other methods that may be even more
    effective. To learn about additional strategies
    that can help promote your loved ones overall
