CHOIR PARTICIPATION TO IMPROVE WELLBEING AND RELATIONSHIP QUALITY FOR COMMUNITY-DWELLING PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA AND THEIR PRIMARY CARE-GIVERS
Grant number: 1106603 | Funding period: 2016 - 2022
An estimated 300,000 Australians live with dementia and this figure is projected to triple by 2050. Aligning with government priorities to support primary caregivers to care for loved ones at home, this project investigates the effect of choir participation and familiar music for people with dementia and their caregivers. We expect to find evidence that active music participation enhances wellbeing, quality of life, and relationship quality for people with dementia and their caregivers.
