Power of Music & Dementia
The Power of Music & Dementia research tour ran for 4-months with the aim to objectively prove the power of music, in this case music unconnected to memory, for people living with dementia. Beatie performed a set of her original material in a number of care homes across the UK and responses were monitored, by 20/20 Research & Spirit of Creation, both during the live performance and in the weeks following as the same residents listened to Beatie's music on headsets. The music, which residents were hearing for the first time and relied on no "trigger" responses, sparked numerous meaningful connections & breakthrough moments with singing along, dancing, clapping during the live performances and significant improvements in memory and communication across the 4-month period . The findings appear in three parts: documentary video (below), data & testimonials. 'Power of Music & Dementia' is generously supported by The Utley Foundation
