Music has power—especially for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. And it can spark compelling outcomes even in the very late stages of the disease.
When used appropriately, music can shift mood, manage stress-induced agitation, stimulate positive interactions, facilitate cognitive function, and coordinate motor movements.
The connection can be so strong that hearing a tune long after the occurrence evokes a memory of it.
This device is a sweet guide to not going so far from home and getting back to home for people with Alzheimer’s disease who usually want to go for a walk alone.
