Music for my Mind:

Your contributions will help the team at Music for my Mind, continue to create and provide personalised playlists for people living with dementia at home, who may be experiencing increased distress, due to the isolation or shielding.

There is growing evidence that personalised music can be calming and/or stimulating for people living with dementia; it can recreate the ‘common ground’ stolen from relationships or bring back treasured memories. 

We are conducting research to develop efficient and cost-effective technology to create and deliver personalised playlists. The findings from this research will also contribute to the evidence base to demonstrate the value and benefits of personalised music in dementia care, to help persuade care professionals to adopt these approaches widely. 

We have witnessed first-hand the effect music has on everyone, as can be seen in some of the reactions we had during our research:

‘It’s like having my brother back.’ – sister of someone living with dementia

‘There is no doubt that having this playlist enhanced the quality of her remaining life.’ – husband of someone living with dementia

‘I was in another world there’. – person living with dementia
