Within the last decade music therapists have developed their work with the elderly and with people with dementia. Drawing on the diverse research and considerable personal experience of contributors from around the world, Music Therapy in Dementia Care takes a comprehensive look at music therapy as a means of improving memory, health and identity in those suffering from dementia - particularly the Alzheimer's type. It explores the issues which may arise in working with this group, such as coping with wartime memories, and shows how music therapy facilitates and enables communication through sound and movement. This fresh, original book is an interesting and informative read for the caregivers and families of dementia sufferers, and an essential resource for music therapists and all those involved in psychogeriatry.
