The National Campaign Music for Dementia 2020 has launched the first ever online Musical Map for Dementia. The idea is to have one centralised platform with information of all music-based activities and services nationwide, for people living with dementia, in order to improve their dementia care.
About Music for my Mind
We all have a favourite song. Or a piece of music associated with a particular memory. And there’s growing evidence that music can improve the quality of life for people living with dementia.
At Music for my Mind, we want to raise awareness of the positive effects of music for people affected by dementia. By developing cost-effective technology, we aim to give them, their families and carers quick, easy access to personalised music playlists, wherever and whenever they’re needed. And we’ve only just begun.

First piece of research
Why not take part in our first piece of research! We are looking at whether there is a period in a person’s life where they are most aware of popular music. Knowing this will allow our charity to narrow in on the songs from that correct era, when introducing music to people living with dementia, particularly to the people who can no longer tell us what they liked. The more people who fill out the survey, the more accurate our approach will be. Take part now!
