Music therapy is one of the charity's initiatives to help achieve this, particularly, for people living with dementia.

The service aims to enhance quality of life and help personalise care in care homes. Over the years, we have continued to engage in research for patient benefit and have ongoing collaboration with the universities in the UK and EU.
