This CLE presentation will be heavily weighted on theory and research supplemented by patient cases and anecdotal observations to advance the major proposition of this paper. The course is designed to challenge and expand your thinking. Where the probate attorney is doing advanced planning, involved in any details regarding placement and funding of services for those cognitive deficits, or is acting as guardian, a working knowledge of the effects of music/media upon brain function is essential.

The increasing number of appointments for guardians of individuals with Alzheimer’s and other severe cognitive deficits and growing concerns over the care of persons with severe cognitive deficits either acquired or from degenerative processes raises the need to understand the expanding modalities that can improve the quality of life of the client/ward. (Citations, duty of guardians) Increasing evidence shows that music and media have significant benefits for the cognitive and emotional performance of persons with cognitive deficits. As the funding becomes available and the provider system begins to allow a more concerted effort to provide these services it is vital that probate attorneys and guardians who deal with these issues have a fundamental understanding of the importance of music and media in the well-being of their clients/wards.

As a direct corollary to this principle, at some point in time it may be considered obligatory upon the professional working with the patient/client to inquire of and insist upon proper music and media modalities as an integral part of the care and experience of the client/ward.
