Mackenzie commented on Music Memory Box

When my grandmother was nearing the end of her life her dementia was to a point where she could not remember any family members. But she remembered hundreds of old songs, all you needed to do was start singing and she would intuitively sing along. I think everyone in the home thought we were mad always singing but Music is such a powerful tool to use. I absolutely think this is a fantastic opportunity.
Do you see this product as always being a very physical product or can you see a digital version of this product? Or is the physical touch of the a real object fundamental to the concept.

Fantastic!
In Brisbane Australia there is a aged care provider looking to build a student accommodation mixed with an aged care facility. This would be a fantastic program for them.

Hi Guys
I love the idea, I am curious though as to how you are dealing with the issue of losing the tablet or remembering to watch it. Or is the idea that the caregiver will be there to show them the video of themselves performing the task.
