Free iPods with customized playlists for adults with memory loss.

Services Offered

Music • Music Therapy • Alzheimer's • Memory Loss • Dementia


The Music and Memory program provides music therapy in the form of customized iPod playlists for older adults with memory loss. The client's family works with a trained nurse or volunteer to develop a customized playlist of music from the client's lifetime, which they can listen to using the iPod provided. This can be used to reduce reliance on anti-psychotic drugs and can help patients tap into positive memories/emotions from the past. It has been shown to minimize the effects of sundowning, as well.
