Music Helps Care for the Elderly – new development in home care jobsBy admin I Care Jobs News I 0 comment
Research conducted in the United States has shown that music can help care for the elderly – which is a new type of work for care jobs in surrey. In many cases terminally ill patients found comfort in songs about love, life and embracing death, whilst in other situations the able bodied elderly are finding a new lease of life by playing instruments. Hospitals, care homes, district nurses and relatives do all they can to help care for elderly, and although care home equipment is available for the physical side of health care, music can help with the mental and emotional aspects of growing old.
Music therapy was not alone found to trigger memories and emotions in senior citizens, but also improved the awareness and concentration. Sitting around with a blanket over your legs all day only offers a certain degree of comfort and many old people shut down to escape from the reality of the material world and prefer to escape to the world of their imaginations. Life does not stimulate them like it used to when they were mobile. Many care jobs involve helping people to maintain their comfort in old age.
