The power of music is so significant. We must work together to unleash its potential by using it as a therapeutic intervention to support people with dementia, enhancing the care we provide.

Embed the benefits of playlists throughout your organisation!
Our Train the Trainer course is tailored for the needs of larger organisations.
We’ll work with you to understand what you do as we train and accredit a member of your staff as a Playlist for Life certified trainer. Having one fully accredited member of your team provides them with the skills and knowledge to deliver training in-house to all staff within your organisation. This is a cost-effective and efficient way of keeping your Playlist for Life project going as new staff join your organisation.
Then we’ll give you ongoing support and a licence to use – and adapt – our popular range of printed and online resources to train staff throughout your organisation.
Help your staff give the best care they can with a proven person-centred intervention.
