m4d Radio launches to help those living with dementia

Music for Dementia has launched m4d Radio to help bring music into the lives of people living with dementia. The five free radio stations play music from the 1930s onwards, including one designed to bring together listeners of all ages in a care home setting with a mix of music.  

Following focus groups and feedback the five stations have been curated to create a source of appropriate music. The programme includes sessions on music to move to, songs from musicals, and soothing night-time tracks.

The stations are being supported by Music for Dementia’s ambassador, Lauren Laverne, who is launching the campaign with a #Song4You social media video campaign. The campaign involves dedicating a song to a person close to those who have been affected by dementia. Use the hashtags #Song4You and #M4Dradio to follow the campaign.
