ITunes for those with memory problems!
I just found out about this great program from the Institute for Music & Neurologic Function. Their mission is: Through the scientific explorations of music and the brain, the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function seeks to establish new knowledge and develop more effective therapies which awaken, stimulate and heal through the extraordinary power of music. My favorite part of this whole program though is the list of downloads for Ipods designed specifically for those with dementia. You can go to their website, click on the songs they have suggested and it takes you to the ITunes store where you can download each one. What a great idea. As I'm in my 40's I forget some of the songs for people in their 80's and 90's. This program makes it easy for me to download the most appropriate tunes in the shortest amount of time. Music has been found to sooth the soul and it is never more so than in someone who has or is losing their memory. Music is always there for them.
