The Alzheimer’s Research UK Conference is the UK’s largest dementia research conference and this year there will be up to 450 delegates in the Neo-Gothic surroundings of Manchester Town Hall. With no parallel sessions, this is the perfect conference to gain insight from basic researchers through to clinical colleagues.
The first part of this free online presentation will consider the value of recorded music for the rehabilitation of people poststroke. The second will examine the value of group and care-giver singing for people affected by dementia.
This work is of considerable significance to the field of arts, health and wellbeing. It begins to place the value of musical interventions in health and social care on a secure scientific foundation.
