Subject: RE: Entertaining dementia patients
I agree that some recorded music is valuable in these situations. We have a small collection of old wind up gramophones and sometimes take one with us along with a box of old 78's. Its great the way people want to get involved and ask about the equipment. Where possible we ask for requests.
Most popular are the Dance bands of the 30's and George Formby most of which we have in our own collection.
