Music Has Power in Senior Wellness and Healthcare

Best Practices from Music Therapy
The transformative role music therapy can play in all areas of healthcare, and especially in the care of older adults is increasingly apparent. However, while music activities are present in most care settings, these activities don't provide the therapeutic benefits that are possible with music therapy-informed interventions and programs. Best practices from music therapy are transforming dementia care, and have the potential to improve healthcare-and health-for older people, whatever their needs, wherever they receive care. Dr. Concetta Tomaino, a pioneer in the field of music therapy,. shares more than 40 years of clinical and research experience--not just with Music Therapists but also with healthcare leaders, clinicians, and direct care staff. With chapters on mental health and wellness, dementia, as well as movement and speech rehabilitation, this comprehensive and friendly practice guide will help all caregivers use music therapy best practices to provide better, more fulfilling support across all senior healthcare settings.
Dr. Concetta Tomaino is the Executive Director, and co-founder (with renowned neurologist and author, Oliver Sacks) of the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF) Internationally known for her research in the clinical applications of music and neurologic rehabilitation, Dr.Tomaino received the United Nations' Music Therapists for Peace Award of Accomplishment, and her work has been featured on 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, and internationally on the BBC and CBC
