It's the time of year for back to school purchases of new music players and ereaders ... please don't forget to donate the old to nursing homes and Music & Memory

Hey!  Imagine having to condense your library of books into what you could take to a nursing homes (or memory care facility), having to now use large text, depending on others to transport you to and from library (if even able to do that)  ... donate those old eereaders that will borrow/return library books electronically and allow text enlargement (they should come with a menu option to reset to factory defaults or "deregister"; if trouble finding on kindles, you can also do it from manage your account screens).


Music players are wanted as well.  


Have you heard of the "Music and Memory" program?  It's based on science that proves memory of music stays active in synapses and often improves memory when stimulated (https://musicandmemory.org/about/brain-music-connection/ plus Psychology today on why music helps Alzheimer's https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-athletes-way/201312/why-do-the-songs-your-past-evoke-such-vivid-memories  ).  Lots of stories and videos on their site -- Henry's story will get you every time.  Plus nursing homes (memory care) seldom are good about providing access to individualized music tastes.  They do want apple products like iPods, shuffles, nanos, and apple/iTunes gift cards.  You can also email them the egift voucher iTunes codes from coinstar machines if you're hanging on to too much change ...
