There is so much research proving the benefits of music and reminiscence therapy for those living with dementia. The UK is leading the way with doctors now prescribing music under the NHS. The real question is how can we provide this efficiently and effectively in residential aged care and in home care?
Moove & Groove is now supporting staff and families by providing a world first program marrying wireless headphone technology with access to music and listening options and has been able to deliver music as therapy at scale in aged care. With the recent COVID crisis extensive reminiscing video content has also been added to the platform.
The program has been successfully rolled out in over 100 organisations across Australia in under 12 months and this has been largely driven by clinical care managers. Staff are efficiently remotely trained and equipped with a tool to manage dementia behaviours that is varied and flexible. Staff are also able to offer meaningful person centred audio and video options in other languages and as well as spiritual preferences, improving residents' mental health and quality of life. It works well for both isolated residents and groups and an immersive and connected experience can be created for residents whilst social distancing.
Come to our session to see the Moove & Groove Program live demonstration and to hear about the benefits for residents, families and organisations as a whole. See videos of the program in action, the outcomes of our pilots and recent ACU survey research results and the keys to successful rollout and training to ensure music as therapy is embedded in a facility's clinical care.
