Sound is a project that has been designed to create a training program for dementia professionals and caregivers. The objective of this program is to focus on music-based interventions to improve the behaviour and quality of life of older individuals with dementia. This program aims to provide better techniques in dementia care, help patients communicate through music, and offer ongoing training for caregivers. In addition, it also aims to raise awareness in the broader community about the importance of such interventions.
