Your Care Organization's Music Playlists

Options for creating a library of personalized music playlists

A personalized music playlist can be an invaluable tool for caregivers. Incorporating music into a care routine can help teams enrich quality of life and reduce distressing symptoms. 


There are a variety of options for listening to personalized music, including:

  • Ad-Supported Music Services & Radio - Many popular music services and apps provide free access to music, but include advertisements between songs.
  • Streaming Subscription Services - There are an increasing number of apps that offer a subscription service to an ad-free library of music. For a monthly fee, users can create playlists and download music without ads.
  • Purchasing Digital Music - Some music services allow users to create a custom music library by purchasing individual songs, compilations, and albums.

Of all the options, purchasing digital music and streaming services are the best option for care organizations. There are a few key benefits for therapeutic engagement, including:  

  • Full control of the music experience - An advantage of paid music is the ability to control the music selection, adjust playlists, and avoid advertisements.
  • Offline listening options - You can also save music playlists for offline listening, which ensures that care teams can listen to the playlist without the need for Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Ability to sync to multiple devices - When you purchase digital music or a streaming service, songs become part of an organizationally-owned music library that can be utilized across several devices and clients.
