Music is an easily accessible and stimulating medium that can be enjoyed alone or with others, even in the context of severe dementia. The power of music to improve the lives of individuals with dementia, as well as their caregivers, is becoming increasingly recognized as more research is focused on underlying neural relationships and evidence-based music interventions. Nurses and other health professionals can be instrumental in designing and implementing music-based interventions and expanding needed research to promote music as a healing art in dementia care.
