iPod Therapy

iPods are being used to great effect in nursing homes. This video which popped up on Boing Boing is narrated by Oliver Sacks and shows something I've experienced a number of times when playing music for elderly clients suffering from various dementias and depression. While I think live music is nearly always more effective, the ease of use and enormous capacity of iPods are tough to beat.
