Music & TV FAQs

  • For many people living with dementia, music can have a potent, beneficial effect. It has been known to boost mood, induce calm and even improve cognisance in people in the later stages of the condition. In circumstances where other forms of communication have a limited effect, it might be worth playing someone with dementia a favourite song from their past, as this has been known to stimulate individuals in the very last stages of their journey.
  • Creating a calm atmosphere and reducing risk of confusion is an important part of in dementia care at every stage. Simple but stimulating activities such as cooking, crafts or music are good ways of having fun without creating confusion or anxiety. People in the early stages of dementia are often worried about losing independence, and so finding ways that they can continue to do the things they enjoy by themselves can really improve quality of life.
  • Music, and especially singing, is a great way of managing some of the changes in mood and behaviour that can occur during someone’s dementia journey. Engaging with music can boost mood and stimulate the brain at every stage of dementia, occasionally unlocking old memories and frequently creating new experiences of shared happiness.
