Magnifico lo de la musica y los ancianos,
Merveilleux la musique et les personnes âgées,
J’ai travaillé comme auxiliaire dans une résidence et je leur ai fait écouté de la musique plutôt tranquille comme celtique, du monde, de relaxation, aussi actuelle come Il Divo, etc, et les résultats étaient plus de tranquilité.
Je précise que j’étais à un étage où les personnes sont atteintes de démences et ne sortent pas ou avec leur famille si elle vient les visiter.
Pour moi cela a été une magnifique expérience et eux je les ai sentis plus calme, plus eux, il y a même eu une dame qui pleurait lorsqu’elle écoutait certain morceaux, mais elle avait besoin d’extérioriser ce qu’elle gardait en elle …
Malheureusement je n’ai pas pu continuer, je pense que par ici c’est trop neuf…
Je voudrais vous dire combien je suis heureuse que quelque part sur cette planète il existe un endroit ou l’on peut voir que c’est autorisé et que c’est une pratique appuyée par les docteurs et que le résultat est là!
Je ne sais pas assez anglais pour comprendre vos videos et vos articles mais Les Photos sont la Preuve que la Musique est aussi un Instrument de Travail et pour les personnes âgées Un Bien-Être indiscutible!
De ce fait le travail est plus agréable pour tout le monde, cela fait boule de neige!
Je vous remercie pour cela et je vous assure que vous ne perdez rien à traduire vos articles parce que cela devrait arrivés à toutes les résidences de la planète!
Merci et Merveilleuse Continuation!
I have been using music for chronic pain treatment for a few years knowingly but many years unknowingly! Had a very extensicve surgery on my neck a couple of years ago and researched music/pain, and was greatly helped by my vast playlists of every possible genre of music but mostly rock. It enabled me to move the electricity from the pain area in my brain to the music area which is quite close. This is not how a scientist would describe it but it’s what worked for me. Visualizing a band and focusing on the drummer/lead guitar/vocalist, helped immensley. Music worked better than books on tape and television, which only distracted. I have just purchased my 1st ‘Bose’ product, fancy dancy headphones which I use everyday for other chronic pain issues. I dance and sing along and I think I would rather lose my eyesight than my hearing.
My grandfather suffered with Alzheimer’s disease for nearly 10 years before passing away in July 2010. I essentially grew up with this disease, helping my family take care of him for more than half my life, and it really changed me. Big band music had a tremendous effect on him in the early stages (when he could still walk, talk, etc.) and a TV, CD player and radio were always close by. After watching the few videos you have posted on YouTube, I am truly inspired by your work with Music and Memory. I look forward to seeing the full film and thank you for creating what will surely be a powerful documentary.
