Press Play to Rewind aims to work with healthcare professionals in care settings and carers in the community to have the confidence and skills to use person-centred music with older adults, particularly people living with dementia.
Making sure that people are involved in and central to their care is now recognised as a key component of developing high quality healthcare.
Scientific research is central to what we do at Musica. Research suggests that using music-based interventions such as playlists with people living with dementia can result in a significant decrease in typical symptoms such as agitation, apathy, anxiety, and an increase in sense of self-identity, cognitive abilities and quality of life. Our work is underpinned by research, and we understand that using individual playlists with people living with dementia has huge benefits. Not only for the person living with dementia, but their carers and families too.
