Music Therapy Intervention Plan : A) Clinical Population- Elderly Clients with Dementia : Dementia is an illness characterized by multiple cognitive deficits and includes over a dozen similar conditions that have different causes. Dementia may be caused by one or more conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, substance abuse, Parkinson’s disease, or cardiovascular disease. Dementia may have a sudden onset or occur very gradually. Symptoms include the loss of ability to learn new information or to remember previously learned information, or both. Impairment in areas such as speech, writing, gross and fine motor skills, recognition of familiar objects or people, personal hygiene, financial matters, and social skills is common. Dementia is more prevalent in older adults with the rate doubling about every 5 years after the age of 75. It is also believed that music is stored in a separate part of the brain from other information, so no matter how forgetful you get it is believed that most people are still able to remember the lyrics to music.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
