Music and Memory II

This project replicates the initial Music & Memory project, an interprofessional collaboration with musicians from The Phoenix Symphony, staff from a long term facility, and ASU faculty from behavioral science, nursing, and music therapy. It focuses on the role of live music and its impact on the emotional and physical well-being of older adults with dementia, family members, long-term care staff, and musicians.  The replication expands the intervention to a more diverse population of residents with dementia living in a less activity rich environment.
