Why Should I Donate?
Music at Last Society is able to share music with seniors living with dementia thanks to the generosity of people like you. Music is a powerful connector in the setting of dementia with several benefits. It can help reduce anxiety and depression, help maintain speech and language, and enhance quality of life. If you own an iPod that you are no longer using or thinking of getting rid of, please consider donating it to us. Rest assured, your decision to give, whether it be through donating money or a device, has a tangible impact.
How Do We Use Donations?
This is a volunteer-led organization, and all donations are used to buy accessories like headphones, chargers, batteries, speakers, music, and the costs of shipping devices.
The Impact of My Donation
To date, we have helped close to one hundred seniors living in British Columbia and Québec. Although this is a young organization, we hope to expand our reach so many more seniors in need can receive this service. The impact of your donation not only benefits seniors living with dementia, the joy and relief is also felt by families and people responsible for their care. Our volunteers have seen first-hand the positive effects music has had on seniors who benefit from their own personalized device loaded with the music they love to listen to.
