Personalized music is the #1 non-pharm approach. Backed by anecdotal and evidence-based research, it can be used strategically as a tool in any care setting or at home to meet goals and achieve outcomes for individuals with cognitive, intellectual, mental, and physical challenges. It makes caregiving easier and more rewarding.

Learning Objectives:

  • Observe care professionals and at-home family caregivers in a variety of settings utilizing this innovative, person-centered, transformative modality with their clients/loved ones. 
  • Discover the added value of personalized music versus generic music offerings.
  • See examples of how personalized music can provide needed respite for at-home family caregivers
  • Discover the impact of personalized music to offset physical and verbal aggression, resistance to care, increase nutrition, enhance social engagement, transform relationships and ease stress during transitions of care
  • See examples of intergenerational and community engagement.
