|In 2008, our mum suffered a series of mini-strokes resulting in symptoms of dementia. She was a classical music-lover and a talented piano teacher who positively influenced the lives of many young people. Her increasing inability to operate her beloved stereo was difficult for us to observe and set us on a path to find an easy-to-operate solution that could benefit others.
Our search eventually lead us to the Simple Music Player designed especially for those with dementia, Alzheimer's, and similar cognitive challenges.
We discovered that familiar, much-loved music can offer profound benefits for those living with dementia and that playing recognisable music can be a key to enhancing mental well-being and social engagement far beyond its value as entertainment.
"I just wanted to let you know the player has been a success with my father. He really struggles with two mechanical actions in a row and is easily confused by too many buttons, so the radio has been perfect for him. He is also very proud that he can show me has learnt something new. The ability to listen to music has added joy to his life and it is lovely to hear him singing. Thank you prompt and helpful service". Rachel, Whangarei.
