Music Moves Me Trust provides music therapy for people living with dementia in aged residential care facilities to maintain function, access memory and connect with those around them.
The Trust was founded in the Waikato in 2015 in memory of Esmee, a feisty redhead who loved country music. Now working in 10 care facilities in the Waikato, the Trust has recently established a branch in Canterbury and continues to grow to meet the needs of people living with dementia in our community.
The Trust does not charge families or clients for our service and remains 100% community funded. The generosity of Takapoto Estate, Ebbett Audi, Royal Laboratorie and all of our sponsors for this event has been overwhelming and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them and recognise their huge contribution.
