摘要

This study aimed to examine the efficacy and feasibility of a reminiscence music therapy program on improving cognition and decreasing depressive and behavioral symptoms in older adults with dementia. Participants in the reminiscence music therapy group participated in 60-minute reminiscence music therapy twice a week over a period of 4 weeks. Control group received usual care. Results showed that the intervention group exhibited a significant decrease in depressive symptoms compared to the control group (B=-5.30, p=.003). The reminiscence music therapy program exerted non-significant effects on cognition and behavioral symptoms in patients with dementia (p>.05). High adherence (96%) and positive participation data indicated that this reminiscence music program is feasible for people with dementia. Healthcare professionals in community or geriatric care units can create supportive environments and conduct regular reminiscence music activities that are related to festival features and reminiscence music for older adults with dementia to reduce depressive symptoms.
