What are the benefits of music?
Music has the ability to reduce anxiety, depression and stress levels, as well a regulate pain management. Music can also improve self expression, communication with others, mood and other cognitive changes. In regards to Alzheimer’s disease, music is able to minimize difficult behaviors (such as aggression, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, sleep issues, sundowning, suspicion, and wandering) and recover memories. Hearth Hospice is implementing these benefits in our Musical Memoirs program.
