Frequently asked questions

What is Music for my Mind?

Music for my Mind is a new UK charity with a goal to improve quality of life for people living with dementia and their families through listening to personalised music. We are working towards establishing this as a standard of care in all care homes.

What are you raising funds for?

We need to establish key relationships with care homes, health organisations and technology companies and work with them to develop an easy-to-use system for delivering music to people living with dementia. This will help us to work in care homes and answer a series of relevant questions in initial pilot studies, such as whether there is an optimal dose of music that improves mood; is there a specific time of day or situation when music works best and is there a specific type of music that helps in dealing with depressed or agitated moods.

Is my credit card payment secure?

Yes, all donations are secure, using a payment processor called STRIPE. Should there be any problems with the transaction you will be informed through email.

Can Gift Aid be claimed on the donations?

Yes, you can choose to maximise your donation through the Gift Aid system during the check-out process.
