Celebrating 10 years of Playlist for Life

In 2023 we celebrate 10 years of improving lives of people living with dementia through meaningful music. 

Help a loved one living with dementia discover the unique soundtrack of their life

A personalised playlist is a low-cost and unique tool which can bring joy and highlight the ‘me’ in dementia. From managing symptoms of dementia to strengthening connections with family and carers, a playlist has so many benefits.

My grandad has two types of dementia but every time I listen to Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love with him, he sings every word perfectly.

light green speech

[Playlist for Life] has taken a simple concept and used it to deliver profound results, providing a way to connect to the past and help families living with dementia. Its evidence-based approach is highly impressive, with trials in hospitals and care homes showing that people with dementia need less medication when Playlist for Life is included in their care.
