Harmonising

Healthcare

 

Musica is a social enterprise which supports people living with dementia and their caregivers to use music in their daily lives.

Who are we?

Musica is a music and health consultancy with a clear objective to harmonise healthcare by embedding music into dementia care planning. Founded in 2010 by Rosie Mead, Musica is one of the leading music and health organisations in the UK. We were listed on the SE100 index 2020, showcasing the top 100 performing social enterprises in the UK. 

What do we do?

We support care providers to embed music into their daily dementia care through online learning and coaching. Our Innovative 12 week course Press Play to Rewind, has shown to be popular in care homes across the UK. Alongside this, we also deliver meaningful music activities both in-house and online, provided by our team of highly trained and experienced musicians.

#JustOneHour

Our #JustOneHour campaign is revolutionary; we want to start a movement of people making the world a better place for those living with dementia by improving their overall quality of life through music. Taking one small step, one person at a time, just one hour. We are asking every caregiver to pledge to provide one hour a week of meaningful activities for people living with dementia.

The Mission

“Good dementia care means maintaining a good quality of life, it’s all about relationship centred care, meeting the needs of the individual living with dementia and their social connections. My mission is to support every caregiver to embed music into their daily dementia care. I am delighted that Musica is on the SE100 index for 2020, listing the top 100 performing social enterprises in the UK. Additionally, to be on Natwest’s WISE (Women in Social Enterprise) list for 2018, and 2019, recognising the most inspiring and influential women in social enterprise, is just the icing on the cake!”
