Who's the guy with the iPods for dementia people.

He was featured on a couple of NPR shows. He brought iPods into dementia units and got the residents involved with recollections based on their songs from events in their lives.


I want to suggest he do a program on toys for dementia residents. I recall that one facility my mom was in had dolls for residents and several of the residents took pleasure in the dolls. There were no other toys. I suspect toys, dolls, model planes and such would go along way to improving the quality of lives of residents.

I would like to suggest this to him.

2. It sounds like something Oliver Sacks would do, if that helps.
