This World Alzheimer’s Month we’re sharing personal stories, inspiring videos, and valuable insights from those affected by dementia, and asking you to explore the music from your past to help us raise awareness of the profound effects of personally meaningful music.
Our emotional connection with music is entirely unique, and some people can experience a ‘flashback feeling’ when hearing the songs that take them back to a place, time or person before dementia was a part of life. This is the focus for our latest campaign, and we’ll be celebrating that feeling on the 22nd September for National Playlist Day!
Celebrate National Playlist Day
We believe every person living with dementia in the UK should have their own personalised playlist.
This National Playlist Day, join us by sharing a special song from your past and help us to raise awareness of the power of personally meaningful music for dementia. Our free resources can help you find the right music, and encourage others to discover the songs that make up the soundtrack of their life.
