Music Memory Box Aids Dementia Patients

Recommended Posts

These music boxes may be small, but they are having a huge impact on the families who use them.

The Music Memory Box was created as a means of using photographs, objects, and music to help people with dementia to remember their past.

The box is programmed to play certain songs that are associated with the various possessions and photos. When one of the objects is placed in the center of the box, a sensor triggers box’s speakers so that it plays the song that corresponds with the object.

28-year-old designer Chloe Meineck says that her great-grandmother’s experience with dementia served as the inspiration for the box. Whenever Meineck when to visit the senior at her nursing home, the woman always failed to recognize her. Upon hearing certain songs, however, Meineck’s great-grandmother would suddenly begin to recall heartfelt stories from her past.
