Music set to bring comfort to Welsh speakers living with dementia

Welsh speakers living with dementia can now enjoy songs from their past in Welsh, thanks to a Bangor University and Merched y Wawr initiative supported by the Welsh Government to help care givers across Wales improve their quality of life.  

Music is said to help soothe, stimulate and bring to mind long-forgotten memories. As part of the initiative, care homes across Wales are to be provided with a new CD and playlist of specially curated Welsh language music.
