Music therapy Groups for SEniors
A music therapy group is a great addition to the activity schedule of a senior living community. Goals for groups with older adults might include increasing self-expression, promoting positive social interaction, and maintaining or improving speech, cognitive, or motor skills. These fun, engaging groups might involve singing, playing small instruments, and connecting with each other through music. Want to bring smiles to your resident’s faces?

Music Therapy in Memory Care
The power of music to unlock memories in people with dementia is becoming increasingly well-known and documented. When music therapy is included as part of memory care programming, residents will have access to a therapist with specialized training in using live music to help them express themselves, decrease their agitation and discomfort, and maintain positive relationships despite their challenges.
