This short webinar from Playlist for Life is designed to help you share the power of music with the people you support. With a particular focus on how a playlist can be used in befriending, the session will provide you with the knowledge and skills to help you make a personal playlist for your service users.

The session will cover:

• How music can help your service users living with dementia
