Consultation on the sourcing and the implementation of personal music players such as iPods.
Caregivers have observed for decades that Alzheimer's patients can still remember and sing songs long after they've stopped recognizing names and faces. Music has power.
Familiar music can engage very basic mechanisms of emotions, and can stimulate areas of the brain that have been spared damage from age or plaque buildup.

We have provided over 100 iPods to a dozen plus facilities in Illinois. These locations include: a cancer center, a dialysis unit, nursing homes, memory care facilities and assisted living homes.
BE A PARTNER - students, churches, clubs, donors wishing to gather what it takes.
LAUNCH an iPod Program - in Illinois & interested in a starter kit? Join the wishlist.
Support and guidance are provided to those wishing to host an iPod drive. We make it easier for you to host. We can match your gifts with a senior living home or similar organization that has shared an interest and commitment to rolling out their own iPod program. Your student group or club can reap the reward of working directly with seniors by building their playlists and witnessing the power of music first-hand. This is a remarkable volunteer or service hour project for jr. high through college aged students!
We accept gently used or new Apple iPods, charging accessories for iPod, clean over-the-ear headphones, iTunes giftcards, laptops to manage music, and Check or Cash donations. For more information, please call Kelly at 217.254.2149.
Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.”
