The power of music on people with dementia : A literature-based study about healthcare and family members experience of music and musictherapys' effect on people with dementia. (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Dementia is one of the most common diseases in the world and is rapidly increasing in Sweden. Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, Parkinson's disease with dementia, frontotemporal dementia, alcohol dementia and lewy body dementia are among the most common dementia types. Each nine out of ten suffering from dementia has Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) where the symptoms include aggression, anxiety, apathy, hallucinations or sleep disturbances. Memory disorders are one of the symptoms that affect people with dementia and their relatives, music stimulates the individual's memory and creates a pleasant environment for the affected and their career. Aim: The purpose is to describe the healthcare staff and the family members experience of music's effect on people with dementia. Method: Researchers used a literature study in which searches were made on the databases CINAHL and psycINFO. Ten qualitative articles were selected and analyzed according to Friberg's five-step model. Results: The results showed that both healthcare professionals and family members who care for their relatives with dementia experienced that music, singing, music therapy and live music had a good effect on the individual suffering from dementia. They reported that the music had a calming, pleasing and relaxing effect on them. Music brought old memories back to the individuals with dementia and they felt that the music also functioned as exercise. The careers experienced that the music created a nice atmosphere and also a better communication and relationship between the caregiver and the individual with dementia disease. Conclusion: In this literature-based study the authors stated that music worked very well as a nursing measure in caring for people with dementia. When caring for people who suffer from dementia music is an effective and urgent measure where healthcare professionals or caring relatives can use by singing, playing background music and other types of music. Cost-wise, music is a cheap and easy to deal with nursing measure that everyone can use.
