Music and Dementia

How music can help people with Dementia 

Are you suffering with a long-term health condition or supporting someone that needs long-term care? Currently over 850,000 people in the UK are suffering with Dementia and numbers are set to rise to over 1 million by 2025 and a staggering 2 million by 2051.

Dementia can lead to memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language.  Conditions vary and affect people differently but as symptoms progress it often becomes harder to communicate making everyday tasks a challenge. Mood and behaviour changes are common symptoms and leaves families searching for a way to reconnect with the person they know and love.

Recent studies have found music offers a connection between memory and mood. Some exciting initiatives are harnessing the power of music that can be incredibly positive for dementia sufferers and their families.
