Foundations of Dementia Care for Music Therapy and Music Based Interventions: Part i
Music and Medicine
This paper defines the common needs of people with dementia, and how these can be addressed through clinical music therapy and music-based approaches. It describes different types of dementia, brain activity, and functioning, as they relate to differential responses of people with dementia to music. The article explores the ways music affects and can affect behavior, and views how the research literature documents responsiveness to music. Implications of these findings for music therapy practices are also provided. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)
