We offer free advice and support to help families harness the special benefits of personal music for people living with dementia.
Over two decades of scientific research has shown that listening to a personalised playlist can improve the wellbeing of those living with dementia, reducing anxiety and helping to evoke memories that can help families and carers connect. Creating a playlist can also have many benefits for the carer, forging a connection with a loved one over shared memories and offering respite.
This week, we’re amplifying the voices of the carers we have worked with, sharing their experience of creating a personalised playlist with their loved one and the moments of joy that it brought them.
