episode 1: Dr Orii McDermott: The importance of music therapy for people with dementia


Every year nearly 10 million people develop dementia worldwide. That’s one diagnosis every three seconds. In 2012 the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared dementia a global public health priority. 

Could music therapy play a role in enhancing the lives of people living with dementia? Dr Orii McDermott certainly thinks so.

“Music is very much about connecting with people, connecting with the external world.”

In this episode we unpack Dr Orri McDermott's 2013 paper: The importance of music for people with dementia: the perspectives of people with dementia, family carers, staff and music therapists.
