My Dad has parkinsons and I need to get a music player

Hi, my Dad has the later stages of Parkinson's with dementia and is now in a nursing home. This weekend we took some music for him to listen to through earphones and it really did make a difference. I was just wondering if anyone could help me on what music player to buy that he would find it easy to use when we are not there?

Hi lini.home

This is a difficult one. You don't say specifically what would make the player easy to use for your father.

I've contacted the helpline of the Disabled Living Foundation and they may be able to help. You can call them on 0300 999 0004. 



Thank you Ezinda

Just to let you know that I gave my Dad a music player with 212 songs on and the nursing home said that he is much calmer and is really enjoying listening to the music. smile
