But Does it Do Any Good? Measuring the Impact of Music Therapy on People With Advanced Dementia: (innovative Practice)
This article describes the impact of music therapy upon a group of nine people with advanced dementia in a hospital setting. It demonstrates how the impact of music therapy was measured using the case notes completed by nursing and care staff and how these notes suggested that music therapy had a positive effect on the mood and behaviour on eight of the nine people receiving music therapy.
