Being a Music for Dementia champion – Music for Dementia

You are a game changer

You’ve declared your support for getting music into the ears and lives of people living with dementia and now the work begins.

With the number of people living with dementia set only to rise, we have to work together to make music readily available for everyone living with dementia.

What does it entail?

A Music for Dementia Champion learns about how music can help people living with dementia so they can tell others in their community, their workplace, their family, friends and online networks.

Music is truly the gift that keeps on giving and the more people who sign up or talk about its unique contribution to people’s lives, the more the awareness grows.

The suggested actions below needn’t be time-consuming and we hope you will be able to come up with some ideas of your own, too. Come on – let’s make some noise together!
