Playlists for Life
We are a Help Point for Playlists for Life - a music and dementia charity. Over two decades of scientific research has shown that listening to a personal playlist can improve the lives of those living with dementia. In fact, listening to music that is personally meaningful has many psychological benefits, meaning anyone can benefit from a playlist.  For more information visit Community Builder (Dementia) - Rainbow Services - Harlow
