Creating a Playlist for Life
The team at Carlingwark House, a specialist dementia care home that we oversee in Castle Douglas, have pioneered the use of Playlist for Life.
This is a special music therapy that sees people who live with dementia enjoy person-centred playlists, made up of songs that represent the soundtrack of their life. This personally meaningful music enables people who live with dementia to reconnect with their treasured memories - helping to improve in their health, happiness and wellbeing.
See the impact that Playlist for Life has had on people we support, in this special video with the creator of this therapy, Sally Magnusson.
