The European voice for informal carers

Project Description

Training Social and health care prOfessionals in mUsic-based therapeutic iNterventions to support older people with Dementia (SOUND)

SOUND is an Erasmus+ funded project which aims to develop a training curriculum of active and passive music-making activities targeted at social and healthcare professionals and informal carers involved in dementia care. The project also aims to produce an original music-based nonpharmacological intervention to improve the behaviour, mood and quality of life of older people with dementia and delay further cognitive decline for as long as possible .

The SOUND educational programme will seek to address different needs:

  • Those of dementia care professionals, who look for more effective methods and techniques for dealing with dementia patients,
  • Those of informal carers, who need to keep on training and acquiring new competences for better managing their loved ones in everyday life, and
  • Those of older people with dementia who must be listened and understood, should be able to communicate through a universal language, need to maintain their residual cognitive capabilities and seek to improve their quality of life.
