Music Therapy in Dementia Care Book Description:

Can music therapy in the treatment of dementia be successful? If so, is it possible to stop the progression of the disease for a certain time? Does the genre of music matter in the treatment of patients suffering from dementia? Is there a difference between the success of active and receptive music therapy? Is music also able to manage behavioural problems like agitation in dementia patients? In my Matura paper I discussed the above-mentioned questions and verified the thesis that music therapy improves the well-being of people suffering from dementia and additionally helps to improve their social and motor skills. Even though dementia is an incurable disease, people suffering from dementia can really benefit from music therapy. Music therapy offers an opportunity for patients to improve their mood and overall well-being, even if only for a certain time. It has the aim to accompany dementia patients throughout their illness and give them the opportunity to reexperience happy feelings. Additionally, music therapy improves the patients' social behaviour such as gesturing, talking and smiling. After attending music therapy, patients are virtually always in a better mood and happier than they were before. The right choice of music in the treatment of dementia is very important in order to avoid any negative reactions of patients to the music. A music therapist gave me meaningful insights into her work and important information on the subject of the influence of music therapy on people suffering from dementia in an interview.

Music Therapy and Neurological Rehabilitation Book Description:

The central tenet of this innovative collection is that identity can be regarded as a performance, achieved through and in dialogue with others. The authors show that where neuro-degenerative disease restricts movement, communication and thought processes and impairs the sense of self, music therapy is an effective intervention in neurological rehabilitation, successfully restoring the performance of identity within which clients can recognise themselves. It can also aid rehabilitation of clients affected by dementia, traumatic brain injury, and multiple sclerosis, among other neuro-generative diseases. Music Therapy and Neurological Rehabilitation is an authoritative and comprehensive text that will be of interest to practising music therapists, students and academics in the field.

In addition, there is a distinct focus throughout on evidence-based practice and its implementation in real-world settings. This book is essential reading for any practitioner and caregiver wanting to support people with dementia.
