Learn in your own way
Over the course you will learn how and why music works, how to use meaningful music activities within your daily care, and how to incorporate personalised playlists as part of your dementia care planning to provide person-centred, responsive care. You will also learn how to measure the impact of music embedded into your care planning.
Home-whole approach
We stress the importance of meaningful music activities being a whole home approach, and we ask that two members of your staff complete the training so that you have a ‘study buddy’ to complete this journey with and work together to implement the learning.
Bite-size learning
To support you to embed music into your dementia care, each module consists of one short written task as well as a practical task to help implement the learning into practice.

KNOWLEDGE & CONFIDENCE The benefits of Press Play to Rewind Training and Intervention for you and those you care for

Press Play to Rewind aims to give you the knowledge and confidence to use meaningful music activities within your daily dementia care, including creating personalised playlists together, which can be used at different points throughout the day. Listening to music together can help to bring back long forgotten memories, strengthen connections, reduce agitation, and improve wellbeing and quality of life.

Press Play to Rewind aims to make your life easier!

Mentoring and Support

Throughout the course, our Director Rosie Mead is on hand to provide mentoring and support to help you embed the learning within your home. Over the duration of the 12 week course you will have access to fortnightly group coaching sessions with other PPTR learners. In addition you will have exclusive access to our online community where you can share ideas, challenges and successes during and after the course.

There is an option upon completion for your setting to become an accredited Press Play to Rewind facility, showcasing to your stakeholders and community that your home is invested in providing person centred, responsive dementia care. We will provide face to face and telephone support to look at the ways that you are implementing what you have learned, make recommendations where needed, and ensure that meaningful music is being used effectively within your home. In addition, you will have the option of a yearly review with Musica to update your accredited status.

Getting started

Before you start the course, we ask all Care Homes to nominate and assign two Press Play to Rewind Champions.

Learning champions can help overcome issues of adopting learning later down the line and successfully align learning with your business goals.

Press Play to Rewind Champions play a key role in helping to motivate learners, including senior staff and Managers, and are best placed to tailor their learning to their audience, with an emphasis on their learning needs, and delivery methods.

“Residents appear happier after a session and are often singing songs from the session and are often singing songs from the session later that day”

“Due to residents disabilities, it is often difficult for them to read or talk but music reaches the areas of the brain they can’t normally access. With our dementia residents, they recognised the music and found the words to speak. Music is deeply rooted in peoples being!”

“Being able to witness the look of recognition and joy as residents respond to music and remember little things about their lives and share them with the group is wonderful.  I love hearing their music memories.”

“Musica workshops are brilliant!  Before Claire starts the session she sits down and talks to the residents and shows them what she will be doing.  It makes a big difference, nearly every resident joins in.  Musica is one of the best sessions we have had for resident involvement.”
