Music and Dementia
What are the best headphones for an elderly person? Any recommendations?

RE:Music and Dementia
Hello Hope4Dad,

The Alzheimer Society Music Project has found over-the-ear headphones to be successful with our clients.

We currently use a mid-level Koss headset, which can be purchased at any big box store.

If you are interested in learning further about our Music Project (which provides personalized music on iPods to Toronto residents), please feel free to visit our website www.musicproject.ca .
