MUSIC THERAPY FOR POST-STROKE AND DEMENTIA CARE
Changing the brain through engagement
Music therapy is very effective for those struggling to communicate, using rhythm and melody to address issues such as aphasia and establish new neural pathways to speech. Motor skills and visual neglect can be improved through techniques using rhythm and instruments. As music uniquely activates memory centers, important memories can be accessed and processed, impacting memory, mood, and cognition. Connections to self and family can be strengthened unlike in any other therapy setting.
