We are a UK based social enterprise that believes in the power of music to support health and wellbeing. Our vision is Music and Health in Harmony. For Everyone.
LifeTracks® and Memory Tracks® are care platforms that link music to daily care tasks and activities for people with cognitive challenges, or neuro diversity.
LifeTracks® supports a range of neuro diverse challenges by enabling musical prompts as notifications to support healthy routines, support positive behaviour change and increase uptake of medication and wellbeing activities.
Memory Tracks® is our app focused on supporting the care of people living with dementia and uses song-task-association at the point-of-care to lower agitation, make care easier and more effective, foster connections, encourage social engagement and support independent living.
Both apps use musical triggers to connect memorable songs via sensors, behaviours or routines, to tasks and activities that need to be carried out. The application helps to trigger memory, manage mood, assist with care, and support important daily routines through the power of song-task association.
Memory Tracks® and LifeTracks® also tackle aspects of loneliness and isolation and create 'moments-of-joy'.
All the songs are licensed through PRS for Music OLE-0000028526 Music on Demand (Standard).
The potential of song-task-association came to Gordon when he was working with a US home care tech client, and with his daughter Fabia, a musician, on her final year University dissertation: Linking memorable songs to daily routines to help those with dementia live more independent lives. LifeTracks is a natural progression of the platform to support more people in their quest for improved mental health and wellbeing.
