Abstract

Objective: to analyze the evidence available on the use of music therapy as an indicator for quality of life improvement in active ageing, with the aim to develop future specific intervention programs to promote health and achieve an adequate ageing and better quality of life.
Method: a narrative review was conducted in these databases: Pubmed, Cuiden Plus, BVS, SciELO and Dialnet. There was a selection of those studies which presented scientific evidence, and had been published in English, Portuguese, French or Spanish. The study included those articles that presented within their research objectives the analysis of the use of music therapy as an improvement in elderly people’s abilities to improve their quality of life and reach an active ageing; those samples taken always included >53-year-old subjects.
Results: nine studies were included for review. All articles mentioned the benefits of music therapy, though their effects differed. The main aspects improved were: reduction in agitation, stress and depression in patients with dementia, as well as encouraging relaxation and a positive emotional response; there was also an improvement in relaxation, communication, expression, affectivity and cognitive level, among others.
Conclusions: music therapy offers varied benefits for elderly people, because it improves their mood and reduces their anxiety, depression, stress and agitation, therefore providing an improvement in their quality of life.
