About our Program:
Music For Memory is a non-profit organization that is providing free ipods to seniors with Alzheimer’s. The iPods are programmed with songs that the seniors enjoy and which provoke positive memories from their past.
This is not a cure for Alzheimer’s/dementia, but an aid to improve the lives of people suffering from this disease and can be combined with other therapeutic activities to enhance the lives of those affected by dementia.
Qualified candidates must have proof of confirmed diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or any other type of dementia.
Contact us at [email protected] if you qualify or wish to donate an ipod.
Music for Memory is a project of United Charitable Programs, Inc. – an Internal Revenue Code section 501 (c)(3) public charity
