Introduction

Multidisciplinary Team Approach and the Educated Consumer

posted 07.27.2017

By Judy Rough

Multidisciplinary care is an integrated team approach to healthcare. The evaluation of treatment options and treatment planning are collaborative processes involving medical and allied healthcare professionals in concertation with the patient and the patient's family.

Healthcare consistently uses this method. Using a multidisciplinary team approach when professionals are working with older adults and their families has significant advantages on the consumer side as well as the professional side.

Music and Memory: Spreading Happiness Through Headphones

posted 07.13.2017

By Alison Biggar

Dan Cohen, founder and executive director of Music & Memory in Mineola, New York, originally thought managers of nursing homes and other institutions housing older adults would take his simple idea—having people with advanced dementia listen to personalized sets of music via iPod—and run with it. After all, Cohen had found that this activity clearly brought happiness to the listeners, with an immediate effect not seen with medication or other activities.
