About Mindsong: The Therapeutic Power of Music

Maggy Grady

Mindsong supports people living with dementia across Gloucestershire through music therapy. We hear from Director of Music Therapy, Maggie Grady, about their innovative new service established in 2016 to support people with complex or advanced dementia in their own homes. This talk will focus on its conception and growth, highlighting the unique aspects of the work, and looking at how and why it has grown so successfully. Some case study examples will also demonstrate outcomes of the work and show how music can be used in a creative and tailored way to support people with dementia and their families.
