For care homes and NHS departments who wish to deliver truly person-centred care through embedding personalised music into care.

Our tailor-made Certified Course has been developed alongside practitioners to support care homes and hospitals to integrate Playlist for Life into existing care networks.

This package is about more than simply sending staff on a course. We offer a combined package of training and support over six months to help your team bring about culture-change that can:

  • Reduce the use of medication
  • Reduce points of stress in the day for staff and residents alike
  • Demonstrate a sector leading performance to inspectors, in which:

    – Staff are empowered to innovate, providing care and support which is truly person-centred.

    – Residents experience support that promotes independence and choice.

    – Residents feel connected to staff, family, friends, and the wider community.

    – Residents are supported to live well with dementia, with the opportunity to maintain and develop their interests, activities and what matters to them.

Organisations completing the course are awarded a plaque to display publicly.

If you would prefer this training face-to-face, costs start at £400. More information can be found below under ‘What’s included‘.
