Abstract/Description: Dementia is a general term that is used to describe significant decline in mental ability strong enough to interfere with daily life. Dementia impacts a person's level of independence and overall quality of life. Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that specifically causes an alteration in memory, cognition, and behavior. Music therapy involves the use of music to address emotional, cognitive, physical and social deficits. Music therapy, like other types of therapy, should be customized to target individual needs. Music therapy can include: listening to music, writing musical lyrics, playing of musical instruments, and even dancing to music. This study will explore the impact of music therapy on elderly patients suffering from Alzheimer's and Other Dementia Related Diseases. The study will specifically conclude which type of music therapy is most effective: pre-recorded music listened to through headphones, live music being played by an instrument, live background music, or clinical group music therapy session. This study will analyze responses to the various forms of therapy in respect to mood, engagement/behavior, and/or cognition.
