Music can help the person shine through
Playlist for Life harnesses the powerful effects of personal music to help anyone who is affected by dementia, their families and carers.
Whether it’s the music from a first dance, lullabies from childhood or a theme tune from a favourite TV show, music has the ability to take us back in time and remind us of our past, giving you that flashback feeling.
Sharing your songs and memories can help people living with dementia connect with family, friends and carers.
Playlist for Life Help Points
We are creating Playlist for Life Help Points at Airdrie Library, Bellshill Cultural Centre, Coatbridge Library, Cumbernauld Library, Motherwell Library and Wishaw Library.
The Help Points will serve as a focal point for our library members to find out more about the transformative effects of making their own playlist.
Rewind: The Tracks That Take You Back
We will be hosting three Rewind sessions to support Playlist for Life – two in person and one online.
These events will help people find out more about the project and help people with creating their own playlists. Find out more by coming along to the sessions.
