Press Play to Rewind is an online course delivered by Musica Music and Wellbeing CIC to support care partners to embed meaningful music into dementia care. No musical experience needed!
PPTR is an online self-study course consisting of four modules covering the theory behind why music is beneficial in dementia care, and practical tools to embed meaningful music within care. In addition, learners have access to group coaching.
PPTR aims to increase care partner understanding and confidence of how to embed meaningful music within dementia care, with the intention to support a reduction in feelings of agitation and improve overall wellbeing for individuals living with dementia.
Press Play to rewind provides care partners with the skills, knowledge and confidence to deliver meaningful music to support the wellbeing of people living with dementia.
PPTR is a four module online self-study course, covering the benefits of music for health and wellbeing, specific benefits in dementia care, adapting musical activities linked with activity profiling, setting up and using personalised playlists, and encompassing a whole-home approach to using music within care homes.
Alongside the self-study learning, each learner has access to group coaching sessions facilitated by Musica, to support embedding the learning in practice.
Press Play to Rewind was designed to support the wellbeing of people living with dementia, and to support a reduction in feelings of agitation.
The course was born out of Dr Rosie Mead’s research within music in dementia care, where it became apparent that the benefits of music around wellbeing and agitation were greatly increased if music was used as a tool within care, on a daily basis.
Conversations within the care sector identified that there was a gap in care partner understanding of how to embed meaningful music within daily care. We wanted to support care partners to increase their understanding and confidence of using music in this way.
So far over 600 people have undertaken the Press Play to Rewind course, and feedback has shown that the course is extremely beneficial for care partners.
We have seen a significant increase in care partner knowledge of how to embed meaningful music within care, and an increase in confidence to do so.
It has been reported that the individuals they have used meaningful music with have experienced a decrease in agitation, which has led to a reduction in caregiver burden.
There has been an increase in care partner wellbeing and an increase in overall wellbeing for the residents.
