For patients in the late stages of Alzheimer’s, communication can be very difficult. Cognitive functions become more and more difficult and eventually impossible. A beneficial therapy that assisted living patients in Cedar Park are receiving is music therapy. Music does not require the use of voluntary cognitive functions it is easily heard by alzheimer care center patients. Music is processed by several parts of the brain and is made up of several different elements such as rhythm, melody, harmony and pitch. Each component of the music has its own benefit and helps with memory care.
Music therapy has been proven to benefit assisted living patients with Alzheimer’s by reducing isolation, decreasing depression, increasing eye contact with activities such as song and dance sessions and playing musical instruments. These activities help exercise cognitive function in patients in the early stages of alzheimers.
