Subject: RE: Entertaining dementia patients
In one of my former lives, I worked with older people in day & residential settings.

When choosing songs to do, or any other activities, its important to involve your potential participants in this process.

Also consider the age groups you have & what music would've been popular in their younger days e.g most folk who'll be in nursing homes etc will be in the 70- 90+ group, so stuff from the 1930's onwards will probably go down ok
