12:46:42     From  deb merriner : My mother-in-law lives in a community in Pittsburgh and is in hospice care now. She is very limited in the ways she can participate in activities, but she LOVES her country music.  When we visit her, we play a Pandora country music station via a Bluetooth speaker and her fingers are tapping and she is smiling even while she’s resting with eyes closed. Sadly, when we leave, the music leaves.  Is anyone aware of any resource/product that we can buy, and download music on, that is also easy to operate so she can listen to her favorite music all day long?

12:59:45     From  Tyras Madren : As both a professional in homecare and a trombonist, I get to witness exactly what you're all sharing with regard to the impact of music on seniors.  The tears, hugs, and voices are incredibly inspiring.  Having such a loud instrument has allowed me to play throughout the pandemic outside facilities while residents listen through open windows.  I get so much joy out of volunteering to play at senior facilities, so if there are any activities directors here, please reach out.
