Alzheimer and music
UiB is currently running a research study on Alzheimers diease
ALMUTH, is an abrevitation for Alzheimer's and Music Therapy, whereby the full name of the project is the effect of choir and singing therapy on brain plactisity, mood and life quality of Alzheimer's patients.
The purpose of the ALMUTH project is for patients in early stages of Alzheimer's disease (AD) to gain health benefits from a music intervention. It is expensive for Bergen kommune with nursing home places and one goal for the project is to keep AD patients home as long as possible. With the therapy we also wish to increase quality of life and mood with people suffering from AD.
