Behavioral - Tailored music listening intervention

The music intervention consists of listening to preferred soothing music at bedtime for 30 minutes every night for four weeks (28 sessions total). This theory based caregiver-assisted intervention builds on the evidence-based protocol of using individualized music to decrease agitation in nursing home residents. It also accounts for sleep-inducing properties of music.
