Music for Life
Engaging people living with dementia and their carers

Wigmore Hall Learning’s Music for Life programme continues to engage people living with dementia in musical creativity together with their families and carers. As well as increasing their sense of wellbeing and alleviating loneliness, working all together helps improve relationships and understanding.

The BBT Communities grant will support the increasing need to connect with people who are at even greater risk of isolation due to the pandemic restrictions. The programme reaches them online in their homes, or in-person as and when it is possible. Music for Life musicians also benefit from their training which equips them with additional skills that positively impact other areas of their life and work.
