Music24 release our Dementia Playlist for #DAW2019

Here at Music24, we realise the importance of accessing music in our day-to-day lives. Everybody has their own ‘Life’s Playlist’. Whether you use music to chill out to, motivate you to workout or to party to at the weekend, everybody should has a playlist.

For Dementia Action Week, one of our actions is to release our playlist: Music24 Dementia Playlist Songbook 1: https://open.spotify.com/user/1vppswdd1x0fsgjbk65vqqqm0/playlist/1xgQfHyXPaM3AVGPsUCKjD?si=J9dE1Gx7RR2VtdjyJeBjGw&fbclid=IwAR2cDadDsY2_bEXHdYBPi1kZkt3yiaUkt9YvsGKEXH_cOnicUO1sRrZafDQ

These are by far the most popular songs requested and played in our music therapy sessions. We may add a few or take out the odd one, but this book has been going strong since day one. Our book is bursting at the seams and contains an enormous variety of different genres and styles, ones that hold great meaning and likewise some that are just plain fun… all packed into one book! We cater to an age range of 55 - 90 so there’s hopefully something in there for everyone.

If you’d like to create a playlist, we’d highly recommend Playlist For Life. Support in creating your own playlist can be found here: https://www.playlistforlife.org.uk

Happy DAW2019! Listen and learn from one another’s experience, always. You are the experts in looking after your loved ones. The journey in dementia can be difficult but music is one way that can help. Use it if you can and everyday if possible!

Friends with Voices at London Luton Airport

The month of May brought us Dementia Awareness Week 2017... and for this, Friends with Voices joined forces again to raise awareness to dementia and promote all the wonderful things that are happening in Luton. 

A video, produced by London Luton Airport, accumulated a whopping 16k+ views! Here's the video of a little sing-a-long we had whilst there:
