For people suffering with dementia, the world can become a lonely and isolated place. Music has long been a vital instrument in transcending cognitive issues; bringing people together, and allowing a person to live in the moment. 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 dementia sufferers. Even those who have lost many social and intellectual capabilities will still enjoy vocal and rhythmic melody, and be able to involve themselves in musical dialogue. Suitable for students or entry level professionals in music therapy, nursing and care-related fields, "Connecting through Music with People with Dementia" will also appeal to trained musicians interested in working in healthcare.
