The Power of Music | Care Work Professionals

The Power of MusicIntroduction to Music Therapy in the Community

The Loop are holding a Dementia Music Therapy Awareness Session for Care Work Professionals on Thursday 29th June 2023, in West Clandon.

This session, to raise awareness of the Power of Music, will be tailored specifically for Professional Care Workers who support clients with dementia. At the session, run by a trained music therapist, attendees will be introduced to the benefits music has and will learn music therapy exercises and techniques that can be used in the workplace to support, engage, and stimulate clients living with dementia.

The power music has for people living with dementia cannot be underestimated. It has the power to bring people together in the here and now, providing a way to reconnect with memories again, musical moments to share with loved ones. Research shows that music can help reduce some of the distressing symptoms of dementia, such as agitation, apathy, and anxiety. Music therapy engages healthy parts of the brain to address many of these symptoms and some of the knock-on effects of dementia, such as loss of confidence and self-worth, low mood and feelings of frustration, irritability, isolation, and confusion.

There are limited places on the session available at £15 per person. To book a place, or for more information, contact Ingrid at The Loop.
