Jim & Sybil’s story

Sybil and Jim met in 1985 at a conference in America, and led an exciting life together filled with travelling and a love of gardening. When Jim was diagnosed with dementia, their lives were turned upside down with Sybil caring for them in their home.

When Jim was taken into hospital for his dementia, Sybil found visiting him difficult, until she found out about Playlist for Life through one of our Speakers. A playlist of Jim’s personally meaningful music brought Sybil hope, and she asked her son to help her put Jim’s favourite songs onto a portable music player. Sybil and Jim were now able to sit together and enjoy spending the afternoons listening to some of his favourite songs together.
