Event Details

Music is an effective method of communication, a calming strategy and reminiscence tool.

Favourite tunes can be used to prompt special memories of people, places and events.

It has been proven that when used as therapy, music has positive effects on our physiology, affecting our heart rate, blood pressure and nervous system. Singing in particular decreases agitation, improves comprehension, lifts mood, builds trust and self-confidence.

This half-day experiential workshop is for anyone working in health, aged or community care services and will explore:

  • Developing music programs
  • Setting up a choir
  • Using a playlist in a person-centred approach
  • Use of music in the environment

Organiser

Alzheimer's WA

As the dementia experts Alzheimer’s WA works with those living with dementia and the organisations that care and support them, to have the greatest beneficial impact on their dementia journey.

Our client services, advocacy work , training and consultancy programs are based on a philosophy of understanding the lived experience of dementia. We are guided by people living with dementia and our approach views dementia as a holistic experience for the person rather than just a biological illness.

Our wide range of dementia specialised support services includes respite, counselling, education and social programmes available to people living with dementia as well as their families and carers.

Alzheimer’s WA also works in partnership with community, aged, health and disability providers. Our capacity building model brings our dementia expertise to support the development of your services and environments through training, consultancy and client service brokerage.

Please contact us on 1300 66 77 88 if you would like any further information.
