Researchers study long-term effectiveness of treating dementia with music
Sacramento Business Journal

Researchers with the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis will investigate ways of using music to improve dementia care at skilled nursing facilities.

As part of a three-year study, the California Association of Health Facilities will see if listening to a personalized list of favorite songs reduces dementia patients’ need for medication. Researchers from the University of California Davis will crunch data from that study to see if it works, how it works and how the technique can best be implemented.
