As you may have seen in last week’s update, Playlist for Life is a music and dementia charity trying to reach as many older people and those living with dementia as possible. In addition to the resources listed last week, Playlist for Life also have a useful Playlist Maker on their website to help anyone who would like to make a playlist on Spotify but doesn’t know how to get started. You can even browse song suggestions based on your year of birth. You can take a look at the Playlist Maker here and view the other resources below.
Community groups 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. A Help Point is a place where people can get information about creating and using a personal playlist to help someone living with dementia. There may be people who are using your services who would benefit from Playlist for Life’s free resources or they may know someone who would benefit.
You can sign-up to be a Help Point and get access to the free webinar on sharing the power of personal music in your community. You’ll also receive free materials to distribute to people in your community. Please see the image below for some examples of resources you would receive. They offer both paper and virtual resources.
