Bringing The Health Benefits of Music To Our Residents

For senior citizens, the health benefits of listening to music are incredibly important.

According to Johns Hopkins Center for Music & Medicine, music can be considered medicine for the mind, indicating that there are many health benefits associated with music: from improved memory to stress relief, motivation – and even decreased pain from chronic illness.

Though acknowledging the role of music in addressing illness is not new, recent research is shedding light on how music affects the brain and other body systems in a measurable way.

While scientists are still studying why music has such positive effects, they agree that for seniors, these benefits are crucial.
