MUSIC lights up more parts of the brain than any other activity known to man/woman - FACT!!
What some don’t know is that the receptors in the brain that receives the signal every time music is played are never affected by dementia, and that’s why, even if you have dementia or not, you can remember where you where, who you were with, how old you were, when certain songs are played, usually your favourite songs.
So, what we did here at the Purple Angel campaign was to ask those with dementia what their very own top 15/20 songs are along with the artists that sang them or played them. This is so important as so many covers have been made of certain songs and not all are good, as I am sure you know. After doing a lot of fundraising we purchased brand new Mp3 players, and headphones and quite simply uploaded the chosen music onto them and posted them to the people who had sent in their order forms. All this was done free of charge, postage, packaging, the lot - because of the fundraising we did and the results were nothing short of incredible.
