Organisation Summary

Memory Tracks is a ‘music-care platform’, a service that assists with the care for older individuals and particularly those living with dementia. Memory Tracks uses song-task association to help those living with cognitive issues recall activities, maintain routines, and remain more independent in the early stages of the illness. Later in the illness it supports care practitioners making care giving much easier. Music helps lower anxiety, depression and agitation, and as a result people can be easier to care for. Their Memory Tracks also serve as a connection between the person and their family or carer, assisting recognition and shared experiences.
