Music-Assisted Dementia Care

Through a generous grant from the New York State Department of Health, MJHS has developed an innovative music therapy program, Keys to Dementia Care. The program uses a music-based approach to relieve symptoms of dementia, including agitation, depression and anxiety. Keys to Dementia Carehelps unlock hidden joys and outlines how the use of music and instruments can re-open minds and rejuvenate relationships. During the last three years, MJHS has trained its staff on music-assisted care techniques. The results show a higher level of care, with stronger bonds between residents and family members, as well as staff.
