Sport Soundtrack

Music can bring back memories and help people living with dementia

Do you know a sports fan living with dementia?

Did you know that music can help improve the lives of people affected by the condition?

Music is everywhere and a part of our daily lives. Think of the songs that take you back to the stadium, the chants that remind you of your favourite games, and the song everyone associates with your team. 

A personal playlist of meaningful music, like our favourite sports songs, can bring back memories for  people living with dementia, and have multiple benefits including reduced anxiety, improved mood and opportunities to connect with friends, loved ones and carers.

We have created a playlist of Chelsea songs for all fans to enjoy whilst watching matches at home. Many of our senior participants, all huge Chelsea F.C. fans, have helped us come up with the different songs within the playlist, discussing how these songs bring back memories of watching CFC over the years.
