bbc music day 2019 logo

We are delighted to announce that we are working collaboratively with the BBC to help bring music to everyone in the UK living with dementia by 2020, using BBC Music Day on 26 September 2019 as a platform.

Through our pioneering music therapy work with older people living with dementia in our specialist care homes, we know the power that music can have. We were the first to introduce music therapy in care homes 11 years ago and are now one of the largest employers of music therapists working with older people living with dementia.

Our 26 music therapists work across our specialist dementia care homes, providing more than 800 older people with a programme of one-to-one sessions each year.

For its music and dementia initiative, BBC Music Day is collaborating with over 50 organisations involved in dementia care, like ourselves, reaching out to our residents’ families and friends, our supporters and our staff, to help bring music to everyone living with dementia in the UK.

The Grammy-winning musician and producer Nile Rodgers is one of the ambassadors for the day, which will feature special programmes and features across all the BBC’s radio, television and online network.
