Dementia Care In Kansas City: Benefits of Music Therapy

Our dementia care in Kansas City facility, Clover Care Home, knows music therapy has power, and there are many benefits that accompany this type of therapy.  When used appropriately, music therapy can shift moods, manage stress-induced agitation, stimulate positive interactions, facilitate cognitive function, and coordinate motor movement.

Music therapy can spark compelling outcomes even in the very late stages of dementia. At Clover Care, we believe so much in the therapeutic efforts of music on our residents of dementia care in Kansas City, that we have schedule music therapy sessions twice a week provided by music therapist, Karen Rehm. Our residents love their hour with Karen twice weekly, and you can see the difference!

Another benefit of music therapy is that is gives way for your loved one to communicate in a non-verbal way. Our dementia care in Kansas City home, following a visit from our music therapist, is full of smiles. You can hear the humming of a tune under ones breath and the brightness in everyone’s eyes that comes after a meaningful connection with music.

It is also well-known that music therapy plays a huge role in the reduction of stress, anxiety and depression. Your loved ones connect with music in a way that is not always available to younger generations, because most often, they lived during the time when their favorite songs were written. When listening to these favorite songs, memories of celebrations and family and friends will be triggered into remembrance.

At our dementia care in Kansas City facility, we know the power music plays in our daily lives, especially if a person was musically-inclined themselves such as vocal or instrumental performance. Sometimes listening to operas, musicals, or even symphony performances can bring back wonderful memories of music performances your loved one experienced.

If you are looking for dementia care in Kansas City that includes regularly scheduled music therapy sessions, contact us today at (913) 991-2605 to ask us how you can get your loved one involved in music therapy.


The care our mom has received at Clover Care has been nothing short of exceptional. The country setting helps to add to the inviting atmosphere in which our mom has thrived. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Clover Care has made a difficult situation seem like a natural transition in life. We would recommend it to anyone looking for long term care of a loved one.
