Music for Life is a project that has pioneered and developed interactive, creative music workshop programmes for people living with dementia. Work takes place in residential homes, hospitals, extra care housing and day care centres. The project aims both to enhance the quality of life of its participants and to demonstrate to staff the emotional, social and physical potential of people in their care. Its focus is on people who can be isolated and disempowered as a result of the advanced stage of their dementia. Music for Life was founded by Linda Rose in 1993 and has been developed in association with Jewish Care and a growing team of musicians.  Music for Life is now managed by Wigmore Hall in partnership with Dementia UK.
