A Service of Attuned Music Therapy and Services, LLC in Pensacola, Florida
Musicking for Now is a service to guide caregivers to use music with family members with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias through digital content
Go to the Spotify Musicking for Now page and find a collection of playlists in various popular music styles designed to create a relaxing effect. Look for the playlists that begin with "Musicking:". Start at or near the top of the playlist and let the songs play in order. As the songs play, each one is a little slower and calming. A new playlist comes out each month.
