At Best Home Care, we pride ourselves on being up to date on all the new and innovative therapies that can assist in elderly care, senior homecare, pediatric homecare and home health care for the disabled. One major form of art therapy that has been growing quite a bit in the last ten years is music therapy.
Home healthcare aides and personal care assistants have been able to incorporate music therapy in their homecare services. While it has proven to aid in reducing anxiety and stress, it can actually provide all those benefits and more for seniors. Music can be extremely beneficial to those suffering from dementia. It helps to reminisce on past experiences and memories and serves as a mood booster.
Here are some of the most popular artists for the elderly based on their age:
- Age 90 and up: Try some classics from the 30’s by the Andrews Sisters, Benny Goodman, Bing Crosby, Duke Ellington, Fred Astaire, and Judy Garland.
- Age 80-90: Some popular singers of this generation include Dinah Shore, Nat King Cole, Patti Page, Tony Bennett, Billie Holiday, and Glenn Miller.
- Age 70-80: Bring back some classic songs from the 50’s. Include The Rat Pack, Elvis Presley, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Conway Twitty, and Connie Francis.
- Age 60-70: The 60’s had some great artists and you will definitely want to include Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Simon & Garfunkel, The Supremes, and Roy Orbison.
