This web seminar is based on the 2017 Aging in America Conference (AIA) workshop “Using Music and Technology to Drastically Improve Our Lives as We Age.”

By providing your residents with regular, therapeutic, active music-making opportunities, you can quantitatively improve their quality of life and health while creating a joyful, caring environment that is attractive to families and staff. The changing demographics of residents and families, combined with new regulations, are demanding that providers offer a higher level of care. Yet, especially for those with dementia, very few interventions can reliably improve the quality of life, health and social engagement of residents. Active music making is the exception to this rule. Certified music therapist Andy Tubman will take the audience on a musical journey to reveal the science and business behind active music making and how it can help providers meet the needs of a wide variety of residents, including those with dementia, Parkinson’s disease and low vision.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the current science around singing and the brain;
  • Understand the current environment of companies focused on music as medicine and technology; and,
  • Discuss practical engagement techniques in a musical setting.
