Music can help the person shine through dementia
This World Alzheimer’s Month, we’re focusing on the people beyond the dementia diagnosis.
Music that gives you that flashback feeling can be a lifeline for people living with dementia. Personal playlists, which tell the story of someone’s life through music, can be a powerful tool to unlock people’s individuality and help the person shine through. Put simply, music can shine a spotlight on the ‘me’ in dementia.
Over two decades of scientific research has shown that listening to a personal playlist can improve the lives of those living with dementia.
At Playlist for Life, we want to show you how to harness the power of personal music, helping anyone affected by dementia to shine through.
