Tune in to help oth­ers

Wanneroo Times - - News -

A MINDARIE school and Kin­ross aged-care provider have teamed up to give peo­ple with de­men­tia mod­ern mu­sic tech­nol­ogy.

Peter Moyes Angli­can Com­mu­nity School and Amana Liv­ing are ex­pand­ing an in­no­va­tive mu­sic pro­gram, Tune into Life, that col­lects iPods to re­dis­tribute to peo­ple with de­men­tia.

The school aims to col­lect 10 iPods a week and has called on the com­mu­nity to do­nate sec­ond-hand iPods or iTunes vouch­ers to do­nate to the pro­gram.

“Last year’s Tune into Life pi­lot showed the pos­i­tive im­pact that per­son­alised playlists can have on the life of a per­son with de­men­tia,” Amana Liv­ing en­rich­ment man­ager Emily Lees said.

Do­na­tions can be dropped off at the school re­cep­tion. For details, call 9304 5500 or visit www.amanaliv­ing. com.au/tunein­to­life.
