Reducing anxiety in people with dementia

Staff from across the state recently learnt about the benefits of Alphamusic, a brain entrainment technique for reducing the level of agitation in people with dementia.

About 50 staff attended a day-long workshop in Brisbane to learn about the effect Alphamusic has on brainwaves states, which can be used to produce positive outcomes in behaviour
management in people with dementia.

Created and composed by John Levine, Alphamusic is music specifically composed to change brainwave patterns from the beta stressed state to
the alpha calm state.
Co-presenter and Blue Care Kingscliff Gardens Aged Care
Facility Diversional
Therapist Sue
said she has had amazing results
using Alphamusic and
it is now her music of choice in high security
dementia units. “We use it daily in our secure dementia units as an individual
intervention in residents’ rooms and it also works wonders in promoting a calm,
communal environment,” she said. “I have
found playing Alphamusic to be particularly beneficial for reducing residents’
anxiety as well as disruptive and noisy behaviours. “Alphamusic has also proven
to be a valuable tool in palliative care, for both groups and individuals.
“Workshop feedback was excellent and a number of attendees requested the
workshop be repeated across the state so more staff could attend.” To find out
