Music and Dementia | Playlist maker from Playlist for Life

Posted on behalf of Playlist for Life 

Would you like to make a personalised playlist but don’t know how to get started? Playlist for Life can help!

Playlist for Life is a music and dementia charity founded in 2013 by writer and broadcaster Sally Magnusson after the death of her mother, Mamie, who had dementia. Scientific research shows that personalised playlists can:

  • reduce anxiety
  • improve your mood
  • make difficult tasks more manageable
  • evoke memories that can help families and carers connect.

And so, Playlist for Life have put together a range of resources to help people with dementia, their carers and loved ones access a personalised playlist.

“Our vision is simple: we want everyone with dementia to have a unique, personalised playlist and everyone who loves or cares for them to know how to use it.”
