Margaret Cowhig with her family

We see the benefits of music therapy in our dementia care homes every day, enabling people with dementia to express themselves even when they struggle to communicate otherwise. Our ongoing research with Anglia Ruskin University shows demonstrable wellbeing benefits of this interactive therapy – there is even a suggestion that it could reduce the need for drugs.

Through our Stimulating Minds campaign, launched in October, we support the provision of music therapy without charge to people in our dementia care homes and develop our position as a leading Music Therapist employer. Kathryne Cowhig says her mother Margaret (pictured) has become more communicative since beginning music therapy at Laurel Court in Didsbury. “She’s not agitated when she’s in therapy,” she said.
