Is it possible to cure dementia with music? How?
Whether you’re young or old, you enjoy music. But the value of music is more than just simple listening. Therapists working with individuals or groups use music to evoke memories, feelings, and sensations. It has been particularly beneficial for older adults with various types of dementia.
Music is closely related to unconscious emotions activated by musical movements. Playing the old wartime songs for older adults will bring positive memories to their minds. Therapists use music therapy to enhance the overall physical and mental well-being of dementia patients, such as
• Memory recall
• Positive changes in moods and emotional status
• A sense of control over life
• Non-pharmacological management of pain and discomfort
• Stimulation promotes interest even when other approaches are ineffective Structures that promote arithmetic and continuous movement or vocal fluency as an adjunct to physical rehabilitation and opportunities to interact socially with others.
