Moove & Groove is committed to research

For us to continue to improve, it’s vital we know how we’re performing. The results of the 2019 ACU study clearly show Moove & Groove has a positive impact on mental and physical health.
- reduces loneliness
- makes people happier
- reducing depression!
2020 is an exciting year as ACU and Uniting partnering to study the impact of The Moove & Groove Program in residential aged care. Staff tell us the program is an alternate therapy to manage dementia behaviours and it reduces isolation - this study will be focussing on this impact.

Research Partnership

Moove & Groove is currently partnering with The Australian Catholic University and Uniting. The teams are researching the impact of Moove&Groove Program

  • The headphones reducing behaviours caused by dementia and the possible reduction of pharmacological interventions, and
  • Staff experience of The Moove&Groove Program’s benefits

The unique offering of the wireless headphone technology, audio and video content choices, program training and support of staff to allow them to provide “Music As Therapy” and “Reminiscent Therapy has been shown to have a great impact on those already using the program including staff, carers and organisations. Now it is time to test this formally.
