The Importance of Music Therapy - by Becca Stone,MT-BC, Board Certified Music Therapist, Peristyle Residences

When considering options for senior living, it is important to take into account how a loved one will spend their time on a day-to-day basis.
For individuals with cognitive impairments, they may feel as if their mind is going, as it becomes more difficult to navigate their daily world. Research has shown that the use of music as an interactive, therapeutic tool, not only exercises the mind, but also allows individuals the opportunity to meaningfully engage with those around them. Music therapy is a clinical, evidence-based treatment in which music is used to address a series of individualized, non-musical goals. Music therapy interventions can be designed to increase positive socialization, increase self-esteem, manage pain and stress, and provide a reassuring space for emotional expression. Music therapy also provides emotional support for residents and their families to connect and offer a means for creative thinking. The songs used in a group are generally ones that the residents recognize that evoke responses due to familiarity and feelings of comfort. Music is a universal, nonthreatening experience, in which unique and beneficial results are possible.

Our planter boxes allow our residents to garden in the shade and while seated.  Herbs grown in them are used by our staff to cook meals.
