dc.description.abstractObjective: To review current literature concerning the effects of music therapy on Alzheimer's related anxiety and depression. Methods: Literature was gathered through PubMed and CINAHL and assessed the prolonged effects of music therapy on Alzheimer's related anxiety and depression. Results: The literature found showed favorable results for music therapy as an alternative to pharmacological intervention for Alzheimer's related anxiety and depression. The most effective intervention was found by combining music therapy and medication that was already prescribed to the patients. Conclusion: There is a positive correlation between music therapy and the decreasing of Alzheimer's related anxiety and depression, and that long term intervention results in the best outcomes. Music therapy interventions mentioned in this review should continue to be researched to provide effective treatment options for those with the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.
