Why Is Music Engagement Important and Beneficial for Older Adults?

Music engagement for older adults is important because it can help improve overall quality of life, especially for people living with dementia, disease, disability, a lack of social connection, and other concerns. Music-based activities, such as singing, movement to music and instrument play can benefit and enrich participants' lives in many ways such as:

  • Enhancing memory and recall
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Increasing physical movement and circulation
  • Decreasing agitation and combativeness
  • Increasing self-expression

Active and engaging music experiences can boost health by enhancing a person’s cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being. Participation in music activities has many benefits, often producing amazing outcomes, which can include:

  • Improving verbal communication
  • Promoting rest and relaxation
  • Increasing social interaction
  • Stimulating the brain
  • Helping staff, caregivers and family members connect with their residents or loved one

Music is powerful and can uniquely touch the lives of people living with dementia, disease, disability, a lack of social connection and other challenges or limitations associated with aging.  To help support you in providing beneficial music activities for the older adults you care for, we’ve created an engaging online music program for senior care.
