Calling all care homes – nominate your top tunes

July 23, 2020

Music for Dementia is calling on all care homes to help create a UK Care Homes’ Top 10 Favourite Songs’ list for everyone to enjoy on its M4d radio Mix station.

The dementia-friendly internet radio station wants to play a ‘Top of the Pops-style’ playlist compiled by its care home listeners. Does your care home have its own favourite songs to listen to? Ones that always get everyone smiling, tapping, singing or even dancing?

TIP: Why not run an activity or reminiscence session asking everyone what song they would choose, to create your shortlist of 3-5 top tunes?

The top-voted tunes will be played on a date in the autumn on m4d Radio’s Mix station, which plays music from 1930s – 1970s. We’ll be sure to let you know when the hour-long programme is going to be aired, so you can listen to see which of your choices have made it to the top of the care home hit parade! You’ll be able to say, ‘They’re playing our tune’ and know that you made it happen.

Simply enter your song selection via the form below to join in with the fun. There’s also an optional space for you to say why you’ve chosen the songs.

Closing date: Sunday 13th September.
