Help Spread the Music
Give New Life to Someone You Love
No one wants to end up alone and isolated in a care home. It’s hard enough to lose someone you love to Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. It’s terrifying to think you could end up there yourself, someday.
But there’s reason to hope for a better life as we age. At MUSIC & MEMORY, we help people in care homes and other care organisations who suffer from a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges to find renewed meaning and connection in their lives through the gift of personalised music.
Loved Music Can Renew Lives Lost to Dementia
Our approach is simple, elegant and effective: We train care professionals in how to set up personalised music playlists, delivered on MP3 players, for those in their care. These musical favourites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can bring participants back to life, enabling them to feel like themselves again, to converse, socialise and stay present.
Music & Memory’s work is rooted in extensive neuroscience research. The results can be nothing short of miraculous.
