Music to ComfortA woman in her late 70’s came to our home suffering from dementia.
A woman in her late 70’s came to our home suffering from dementia. Her son had been caring for her at home but, as a sole caregiver, he could no longer cope with the demands. Having a difficult time adjusting, she was very tearful and wouldn’t come out of her room. By working with the son, to learn as much as they could about his mother, the Behavioural Support Team set out to assemble a playlist of her favourite music so that she could listen to it on an IPod with headphones. It made all the difference. Now she is up dancing to her favourite music and even tries to teach other residents how to dance.
