Aims and Objectives

Being vaccinated can be a stressful experience for many of us, including those living with dementia. However, there are a number of different ways in which you can help reduce stress and support those with dementia when they are receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

One of these methods is by using music to alleviate stress.  For people with dementia – even those who have lost their ability to communicate or are at the end of their life – music can be a powerful way to trigger positive feelings and connect with other people..   (see link below)

Dementia UK has also produced a guide which contains useful tips on supporting people with dementia when they receive the COVID-19 vaccine. (see link below)
