We’re 2 young siblings (13 and 15) who play the piano and we want to use our piano skills for good causes. This time we choose the Ontario Alzheimer Society beside the fact that it’s a great organization, there are proofs that Music also could help with Dementia.
Here are some related facts about Music & Dementia connections thay we have found.
Based on the article “Music Therapy in the Treatment of Dementia: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis” from the “Frontier in Medicine” Journal, studies have proven that:
. Music therapy is used as a treatment for the improvement of cognitive function in people with dementia.
. The intervention based on listening to music presents the greatest effect on patients with
dementia followed by singing.
. Music therapy improved the quality of life of people with dementia.
. Music has a long-term effect on depression symptoms associated with dementia.
