A study by Bupa suggests music therapy can help dementia patients to communicate and evoke memories.

Sessions have been running at the Anglesea Heights nursing home in Ipswich for years and staff say it's made a real difference.

The therapy also helps to lift the mood of patients, who are encouraged to sing, dance and play musical instruments.
