Abstract

Objective: This work focuses its attention on the observation and evaluation of the process and the outcome of music therapy treatment in moderate-severe dementia. The music therapy treatment will be eventually analyzed to prove its effectiveness from the cognitive, functional and behavioural point of view. Method: 8 patients (6 affected by Alzheimer disease and 2 with vascular dementia) were treated with music therapy and assessed with Mini Mental State Examination, Barthel Index and Neuropsychiatric Inventory before and after the treatment. At the same time a control group that hadn't been under any treatment, was observed with the same criteria. Outcome: The patients under treatment showed a significant statistical decrease in their behaviour disorders. On top of that they revealed an increase of positive relations and positive answers in the music therapy setting. Conclusions: The outcome confirms the assumption that music therapy treatment, together with these criteria of evaluation, can improve communication and relationship skills and reduce behaviour disorders in patients affected by moderate-severe dementia.
