  • Music Therapy in Dementia Care

    It's Music Therapy Week and this year BAMT is focusing on the role of music therapy in dementia care.  Click here to download their flyer, which tells the story of David, and the importance of music therapy in his struggles with dementia.  "I feel more alive and happy after each session" he says.  His wife adds "I wish that this form of therapy could be available on the NHS, as it is clearly so beneficial."

    All this clearly highlights the importance and relevance of our drive to explore the role of skill-sharing in dementia care here in the UK.  Caroline Anderson, our UK Research and Development Officer will be chairing a roundtable discussion titled "What is the relevance of skill-sharing to music therapists working in the field of dementia?" at the upcoming conference "Music Therapy and Dementia Care in the 21st Century" at Anglia Ruskin University in September.  Caroline will be joined by our Director, Alexia Quin, as well as distinguished music therapists, Helen Odell-Miller and Ming Hsu.  A member of care staff and colleague of Ming Hsu's will add a valuable perspective to the discussion, from the point of view of a possible skill-sharing recipient.
