The Power of Music
Music has the power to transform a room into a lively space of happiness, joy and movement. Recent studies have found music is particularly beneficial for people living with dementia as music can reduce stress-induced behaviours, facilitate positive interactions, stimulate cognitive function and improve mobility, resulting in increased overall wellbeing.
With the recent addition of a piano at the Gordon Park Multi Service Centre our mornings have become very lively indeed, with singing and dancing in the lounge room before we head out into the community. The atmosphere is brilliant and the enhanced mood and physical activity enjoyed by our clients has been quite astounding.
