Community groups in the area are being encouraged to help bring the power of personal music to help those living with dementia by setting up a Playlist for Life Help Point.
Playlist for Life is a music and dementia charity that wants everyone living with dementia to have a playlist of personal music and for everyone who cares for them to know how to use it effectively. A Help Point is a place where people can get information about creating and using a personal playlist to help someone living with dementia. By signing up to be a Help Point, community groups will gain access to a free webinar on how to share the power of personal music in your community.
This is very much an intergenerational project and it would be great to get people of all ages involved. Click here for link to workbook for school age children: https://www.playlistforlife.org.uk/young-music-detectives/
We are offering free Music Detective Skills webinars - dates are available here:https://www.playlistforlife.org.uk/book-webinars/
Playlist for Life was founded in 2013 by writer and broadcaster Sally Magnusson. The charity’s work is based on more than two decades of research showing that ‘personal music’ – the specific tunes attached to someone’s emotions that spark memories – can help those living with dementia by alleviating stress, managing symptoms and strengthening relationships with family members and carers.
