Non-profit Company Provides iPods To Nursing Homes For Improved Life Experiences

A non-profit company is collecting iPods as donations for nursing homes. The research suggests that music can relieve stress for patients with Alzheimers. It also allows nursing home residents an alternative to silence and a way to hear their favorite tunes from their lifetimes. 

“..For an individual who gets their music and gets benefits from this, the feedback I get is their life is transformed – not only for the moment but most likely for the rest of their life," says the non-profit owner. “Donations are critical.  The government does not reimburse nursing homes for iPods, so (the nursing homes) won’t do it,” he says. “So every time we have a new non-profit nursing home, we give them a startup kit of mostly donated iPods, and we’ll mix in iPod shuffles bought from donations.” For more, read the story
