This new tech uses music to help dementia patients

As someone who has seen firsthand how music can calm and comfort people with dementia, I’m all for anything that will further this therapy.

The Music Memory Box has a Kickstarter program that can be filled with music, photographs and meaningful objects to help dementia patients remember things that have disappeared in the fog. I like it.

    What a great project! If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend the documentary Alive Inside which focuses on similar themes.
