#music improves quality of life for people with #Dementia

1. Dementia caused by #Alzheimers disease is a relentlessly progressive #brain disease. Sufferers have #memory loss and impaired cognitive functions. Many require assistance for carrying out daily living activities.
2. People with dementia are often depressed and have poor quality of life.
Immediate recall and recent memory are the most affected in dementia, whereas remote memory is preserved until later stages.
Memory of music (especially their favorite ones) is also retained in many.
3. In a study, effects of music on #mood and quality of life of seniors suffering from dementia were assessed.
Over a period of 6 weeks, the seniors listened to their favorite music via headphones and an MP3 player for 20 minutes at a time three or four times a week.

Thoughts on being 1 of 3(?) POCs in a social justice focused music therapy graduate program, a thread.🧵 (1/12)

#musictherapy #AcademicTwitter
I mentally prepare for EVERY class. 99% of my classmates are white & that means being subjected to bits of harm frequently, regardless of what the class is about. Classes are an extension of my every day lived experiences, they aren’t better bc they’re with “educated” ppl. (2/12)
“Educated” in quotes bc academically, sure. We’re all well read. We’re all in a master’s program. But white ppl’s tendency to intellectualize topics that make them uncomfortable takes away from our classes’ ability to have meaningful dialogue. We’re constantly moving away (3/12)

Avui fa un any que vam iniciar el projecte de Musicoteràpia a domicili dins del programa de Crònics Complexos i Pal·liatius Pediàtrics (C2P2) de @SJDbarcelona_ca.

Celebrem que durant aquest temps, s'han pogut beneficiar del projecte 32 nens i nenes de 8 comarques de Catalunya!
Amb aquesta imatge volem agrair l'oportunitat que ens ha apropat a totes aquestes famílies i que ens ha permès aprendre i compartir tota mena d'experiències. Moments significatius, canvi de monotonies, suport als pares i mares, confiança, amistat, comiat, emocions compartides...
Tantes i tantes paraules que acompanyen a la música i que durant un any hem ordit en totes aquestes cases.

Gràcies a l'esforç de @AsociacionAnita, que és qui finança el projecte, hem pogut fer possible aquest somni compartit.

Thanks for your post, @LeahCville.

Music therapy helped me immensely during treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD and an eating disorder. I create playlists with purpose when I need a boost or a good cry.… Image

A New Year’s Day plea on behalf of all the UKs Therapists who want to help rebuild our nation from this tragic pandemic

We need investment across the pathway - we haven’t seen a penny

#LongCOVID clinics are a start but no where near enough 1/6
We have the skills and ability to care for people with complex rehabilitation needs

We work in multi-disciplinary teams, autonomously and in professional groups from intensive care to community

There isn’t a space in health and social care that you won’t find us 2/6
Yet still we suffer from lack of any serious investment. Often being the after thought to business cases, and being expected to do more with less

We have yet to see serious commitment to rehabilitation pathways & if it can’t come now, during a global pandemic, when will it? 3/6

It's for times like these that death metal was invented. #MusicTherapy

First day back at the hospital since the weekend’s madness. I usually run a singing group in the evening that’s open to patients,staff, family & friends. Visitors are now not allowed, so it was just patients at the start, with staff milling in and out.
We talked about the coronavirus, and I suggested singing “I will survive”. We belted out the first line “At first I was afraid I was petrified!!” to much laughter. Somewhere during this, spontaneous dancing happened. I put Dancing Queen next, and before I knew it,
more and more staff came in.. doctor, nurse, HCA.... all dancing with the patients. Stroke patients with limited mobility were on their feet with assistance from staff, dancing along, everyone enjoying themselves but also trying to keep an arm’s width apart.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
