I would like to ask if Spotify could please make a ‘ family’ package that is available to all nursing and dementia homes here in the UK and across the globe?
For the the past six months I have been taking my wireless music headsets in to various old age/ nursing / dementia homes and using the power of Spotify to select the right sort of music for the patients. The results can be truly remarkable, - patients come back to themselves, they start singing and dancing. It is powerful medicine!
But, in these group sessions I noticed that a patient would light up like a lightbulb when I played music they liked and remembered, but when the music changed, that connection was lost. I realized that what they need is their own personal music list!
If each individual patient could have have their own account, then it would be so easy for family and friends to load up the account with music that they know that person loves. Patients would be able to enjoy their own personal play list in the comfort and privacy of their room - and as loud as they like because they’re wearing headsets!
They could also listen and share their special play list with friends and family in the privacy of their own room, - generating a deep experience that can be shared without the need for any words!
If you would please make Spotify available in these sort of establishments, you would be bringing great joy, relief, and even liberation to many millions of people living in these sort of establishments all over the world!
Please use your power to help them?
