Dementia Café creates musical playlists for their visitors

Sep 12, 2019

A café based in Hamilton are working in collaboration with a local charity to create a unique playlist for the people that attend their sessions. The session, which is called the Memories Tea Room, is held monthly for those living with Dementia as well as their carers. As well as providing teas and cakes, the session also provides a safe space for visitors to socialise and share experiences with one another, as well as being offered support and hearing from guest speakers. This months session is taking place on Thursday the 26th September which is BBC Music Day, which is where the idea came along to make a playlist, in partnership with PlaylistForLife who will be curating a playlist of their favourite music from over the years.

Here at Larchfield House, we understand the power that music has on our residents which is why we partnered with Purple Angel to supply our residents with their own MP3 player which allowed them to listen to their favourite songs on the daily and brought a smile to their faces. We continue to include music in what we do which is why we have many activities that are music orientated such as our residents karaoke.
