Maun View care home in Mansfield has been selected by The University of Nottingham in conducting groundbreaking research on the impact of music on individuals living with dementia and depression. As a part of this project, a special musical intervention session was filmed at Maun View care home in Mansfield on Wednesday, January 10th, 2024. This event aimed to showcase the positive effects of music on residents and promote the potential benefits of similar interventions in care settings on a broader scale.
The music session was organised as part of Maun View‘s regular weekly activities programme by Wellbeing Lead, Nia Alston-Holmes. Filming the session provided an opportunity to capture and share the impact that music has had on the lives of Maun View residents living with dementia.
Nia Alston-Holmes, Wellbeing Lead at Maun View, expressed her thoughts on the project, and said: “This initiative has had a long-lasting effect on our residents and their wellbeing. Our weekly musical interventions have proven to elevate mood, enhance memory, and increase overall involvement from the residents. We are excited to showcase the positive impact of these sessions”.
The University of Nottingham and Maun View aim to spread awareness about the potential benefits of musical interventions in care homes and inspire further research and implementation in the field.
