Bringing comfort to dementia patients and their loved ones for some shared 'Moments of Joy'. Provide an opportunity for caregivers and patients to enjoy a fun, and shared activity with therapeutic benefits. Depression and stress are common symptoms for all involved, including caregivers and loved ones, and music helps sooth just a little.
Music for Healing and Transition Program (MHTP)Certified Music Practitioner, sing and play guitar for intimate groups for therapeutic benefit. Well known favorites from days gone by up to more current favorites are included in the carefully designed 45-minute session.
Best practices, ideas for marketing, possible training for others who might find this rewarding. Would like to see if more people can be served with therapeutic music. Advance awareness of the idea that people in residential facilities can supplement daily activities with joy and fun through music.
