Long-Term and Complex/Memory Care Music Therapy
Individual and group music therapy sessions are tailored to meet the needs of your clients, whether in long-term, complex care or memory care settings. Group music therapy sessions are 30-45 minutes in length, while individual sessions vary in length, depending on the need of the client. Themed group music therapy sessions assist with reality orientation, positive engagement and gross motor activity appropriate to the clients' abilities. Individual music therapy sessions may be suitable for clients who are non-ambulatory or unable/unwilling to join in group activities. A personalized session gives the client opportunity to express themselves musically and emotionally while breaking down the barriers of isolation. Music therapy can also assist in mitigating behaviours associated with sundowning in clients with dementia/Alzheimer's disease.
