Key Changes Current Projects

Music therapy in dementia care

Music to their Golden Ears...

was devised in 2016 to provide music therapy for older people who had dementia, in residential care.

A 12-week pilot project ran with groups in a nursing home setting in Alton, Hampshire. It was evaluated using the published tool MiDAS

5 levels were assessed: 

 

Interest

Response

Initiation

Involvement

Enjoyment

 

Project results:

Improvements were evidenced for each group member on all of the 5 levels.

Pauline's Story...

Taster sessions for care homes:

This evidence has enabled discussions with other care homes around providing group sessions.

Through the Key Changes Dementia Fund, 4 free taster sessions are being provided per home.

 

Impressed by the responses in these sessions, homes managers are now committing to continuing this music therapy provision through Key Changes.
