Resource: What would life be – without a song or dance, what are we? A report from the Commission on Dementia and Music.

The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK) is a futures organisation focussed on some of the biggest challenges facing Government and society in the context of demographic change.  New research by ILC-UK’s Commission on Dementia and Music, “What would life be – without a song or a dance what are we?”  examines the existing offer and the future potential for using therapeutic music with dementia. The findings indicate that listening to music helps tackle anxiety, depression and agitation among people living with dementia.
