Learn in your own way
Over the course of the day, 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.
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
In order for this to be adopted as a whole home approach, we set tasks during and after the training, for you to implement your learning in bite-sized chunks.

KNOWLEDGE & CONFIDENCE The benefits of Press Play to Rewind Training and Intervention For You and Your Loved One

Press Play to Rewind aims to give you the knowledge and confidence to use meaningful music activities with your loved one and to create 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, rekindle a love for music and each other, reduce the use of psychotropic drugs, reduce agitation, and improve quality of life.

Face-To-Face Full Day Introduction

Please note the cost doesn't include travel costs. (maximum of 10 attending).

Developed and delivered by practitioners in the field, the training course provides a clear understanding of why and how incorporating music into daily life can benefit a loved one and carer.

The course, which lasts 6 hours (includes 1 hour for lunch) covers subjects such as self-identity, social interaction and agitation, which are all common causes for concern when placing a loved one in a care setting. Often individuals comment that they feel they are losing their independence, and may even be struggling to embrace a new identity – playlists can bridge that gap, and offer comfort and joy, especially during transitional periods Agitation, for example, is often caused by apathy, when one is under stimulated they are more likely to become agitated and this can have a snowball effect, resulting in dissatisfaction, irritability and decrease quality of life.

The Press Play to Rewind project looks at ways at how we can go about combating this, and ways to bring personalised music in day to day care, such as morning routines, during mealtimes, and relaxation techniques such as using music before bed.

Information on how to make playlists is also covered, as is how to set up the project in your setting, and crucially how we can go about measuring the impact and sharing our best practice. It is really important that the use of personalised playlists in your home is considered a whole home approach, and we ask that at least 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.

Cost: £600 Including Accreditation

What happens after the course?

We will contact you around 4 months after your training session to see how you are getting on implementing the learning in your home, and if there is any additional support you need from us. There is an option 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, your home will be able to access the entire training session online, so future employees can catch up relatively easily in the comfort of your own home.

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!”

“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.”
