Press play to Rewind supports healthcare professionals and family carers to use meaningful music activities during the Dementia journey. We provide online and face to face training opportunities for healthcare professionals as well as a free personal support package for family carers.

Press Play to Rewind
+ the dementia journey

Our Press Play to Rewind Training for Healthcare Professionals is aimed at Care Home Managers, Activity Coordinators, Carers, in fact, any member of care home staff! It is an e-learning course, with 4 modules, designed to be studied over a 4 month period or longer. We can also provide face-to-face half-day training if preferred by the care setting.

Learn in your own way
Over the duration of the training, 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 throughout the training, for you to implement your learning in bite-sized chunks.

We will provide face to face and telephone support to look at the ways that you are implementing what you have learnt, make recommendations where needed, and ensure that meaningful music is being used effectively within your home.

“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.”
