Do you love music? Have you considered its benefits for the patients you encounter in nursing homes or during home health visits?
As a nurse, having a non-invasive tool at your disposal that helps your patients feel better and increase cognitive function and communication can be priceless. Since music has been shown to help increase memory and lower anxiety levels in patients. Geriatric nurses can use music in nursing homes, at a patient’s home and even in a hospital setting. Using music as a way to reach patients, calm them and help with memory is one way nurses can help patients live happier and healthier lives.
