Pendine Park Memory Track project launch; Pictured are Stuart Cunningham, Sarah Edwards artist in resident, Cindy Cluttonmanager of the Gwern Alyn Care Home and Gordon Anderson.

An innovative new app is triggering musical memories for people with dementia to help them cope with the challenges of daily life.
The program for mobile devices is being developed with the help of residents at the Pendine Park care organisation in Wrexham who specialise in providing dementia care.
The Memory Tracks app is the brainchild of business development expert Gordon Anderson.
He is working on it with Manchester Metropolitan University’s Stuart Cunningham, who is also a visiting professor of affective computing at Wrexham Glyndwr University, alongside Mark Brill, Senior Lecturer in Creative Advertising, and Harry Whalley, Lecturer in Music Composition and Technology, at the University for the Creative Arts.
