This senior project deals with music therapy and methods used especially with Alzheimer’s patients. Topics concerning music therapy include definitions of music therapy, the history of music therapy, and the training necessary to become a licensed music therapist. The research includes general information concerning Alzheimer’s disease as well as its history and symptoms. In addition to conducting research, the music therapy methods were employed with Alzheimer’s patients at the Brookhaven Retirement Community’s Alzheimer’s Unit in Brookville, Ohio. With the guidance of research, professional music therapists, and medical personnel, positive feedback was observed in the patients’ responses.
