Music and memory are powerfully connected. There is a remarkable outcome when music is used to help people living with dementia; music that is familiar can reconnect people with emotional and meaningful memories from their past. It helps them to re-engage with the world by remembering a sense of who they are.
In our day to day lives too we can hear a certain song and be immediately transported to an emotional memory, triggering a recollection of everything attached to that point in time.
It’s why we believe in emphasising careful music choices for special occasions! When you chose a piece of music for a certain moment it will forever be significant and attached to that memory. We like to help you chose music that will enhance the moment and heighten the beautiful emotion of it - making it all the more special to recall when you hear that particular song again.
