More music activities

Hi, I have just added a couple of music activities in 'Activities for people with Dementia' and here are some suggestions to be carried out by carers/nurses/volunteers
  • Singing with clients as they are dressed in the mornings
  • Tuning radio to suit clients preferences
  • Using music as a strategy to distract from unacceptable behaviour
  • Engaging clients in responding to music: Clapping, tapping and moving.
  • Using music to enhance exercises
  • Using music for reality orientation
  • Instructing and encouraging on how too use percussion instruments
Good luck!
