Tuning into dementia

From Elvis to Ed Sheeran, The Beach Boys to Bon Jovi, music brings people together and makes them think of good times.

Music has been proved to greatly help people living with dementia by connecting a memory or personal emotion. According to Playlist for Life, research has shown that listening to a personal playlist can make living with dementia easier and happier.

Aylesbury Town Council, in co-operation with Aylesbury Library, is continuing to support the community with the launch of #TuesdayTunes.

This is an information point with resources which help to create the perfect playlist that represents someone’s life.

Information will be provided about support groups in Aylesbury and in the rest of Buckinghamshire for those living with dementia and their carers.

Dementia Friendly Aylesbury’s community champion, Benedicta Lasoye, will be at the library with volunteers to help those interested in creating a playlist.

#TuedayTunes sessions will be on the first Tuesday of every month at Aylesbury Library in Walton Street.

The town council and the library are providing the service free to people living with dementia and those who support them.
