Music therapy

and Alzheimer's disease

Music therapy treatment is effective and valid with older persons who have functional deficits in physical, phychological, cognitive or social functioning. Research results and clinical experiences attest to the viability of music therapy even in those who are resistive to other treatment approaches. Music is a form of sensory stimulation, which provokes responses due to the familiarity, predictability, and feelings of security associated with it.
