Music therapy is based on the belief that everyone can respond to music. Even people who experience severe or complex physical and mental illnesses can be soothed through music. It can be especially effective in people diagnosed with dementia as it can bring back special memories or help them express themselves.
Throughout our Barchester care homes, staff are trained to understand the potential benefits of music therapy. We offer a number of activities that use music, from dances to playing instruments and watching well-loved films.
