All you need to know about music -- Singing and choosing songs -- Making a connection -- Putting what you know to use -- Stimulating and relaxing music choices -- Memory and associations -- Caring for yourself -- Songs to use.
This user-friendly book demonstrates how even simple sounds and movements can engage people with dementia, promoting relaxation and enjoyment. All that's needed to succeed is a love of music, and a desire to gain greater communication and more meaningful interaction with people with dementia. The book provides practical advice on using music with people with dementia, including a songbook suggesting a range of popular song choices and a chapter focusing on the importance of caregivers looking after themselves as well as the people they care for. Suitable for both family and professional caregivers with no former experience of music therapy, and for music therapy students and entry level professionals, this accessible book reveals many useful techniques used in music therapy by experienced professionals.--From publisher description.
