The Proust Effect

Sound memories can sometimes bring light into the lives of people suffering from depression. They can unlock emotions which seemed to have been locked away for ever. Memory museums, Storytables, singing sessions, reminiscence therapies with smells, multisensory rooms and other initiatives in residential and nursing homes for older people which stimulate sense memories can help even the most vulnerable older people. They provide fuel for conversation, promote social contact and reduce loneliness and depression. They boost older people’s well-being and sense of self-worth.

Keywords:   classical music, popular music, depression, music therapy, reminiscence therapy, older people, happiness, well-being, multisensory rooms
