Most people with dementia and cognitive decline are older (though younger people can be affected too). As dementia affects a person's thinking and behaviour it can have a significant impact on everyday life. Our wide-ranging research in this area includes randomised controlled trials, longitudinal studies and projects focused on prevention and intervention.

Evaluating the therapeutic effects of music interventions on hospitalised people with dementia

This three arm randomised study was designed to evaluate the effects of music therapy on people with dementia currently residing in sub-acute hospital care for reasons other than dementia.
