Upcoming Workshop Explores How Dementia Symptoms May Be Lessened with Music

Treating dementia and lessening the worst of its symptoms is always a challenge on the front of a caregiver’s mind. In-home caregivers for seniors, such as those from Home Care Assistance, the nation’s leading home care franchise company, do everything they can to make their clients feel comfortable and happy through the symptoms of dementia. Home Care Assistance often explores new treatment options to share with its franchisees and caregivers, too. Thankfully, a breakthrough with musical therapy has recently been made in the scientific community.

Michael Rothenberger, the owner of Home Care Assistance Carmel, knows firsthand how musical therapy can make someone with dementia stem the condition’s symptoms. To help spread the knowledge of musical therapy for dementia patients, he is acting as a key presenter for an upcoming workshop about caregivers using music to fight dementia. The presentation will be hosted by the Great American Songbook Foundation and has been officially endorsed by the Greater Indiana Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

The 2018 Perfect Harmony Fall Training Workshop is scheduled on Thursday, October 25th, 2018 at 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. It will be held at the Palladium Center for Performing Arts at 1 Center Green, Carmel, IN 46032.

Healthcare professionals, in-home caregivers, nurses, and anyone else who works with dementia patients in any capacity are encouraged to attend this workshop. It will be a fantastic opportunity to learn how to integrate music and song into daily routines to reduce dementia symptoms. With the right application, such caregiving techniques have been shown to help seniors redevelop lost skills, such as motor control, communication, emotional recognition, and constructive thought.

Home Care Assistance is passionate about doing everything we can to provide the best possible in-home care to seniors and people in need.
