Donated iPods used to set up music therapy for Alzheimer's patients

ABC News and Yahoo! report on the use of donated iPods to provide Alzeheimer’s patients a source for music therapy, in this story by Byron Pitts about a project by Dan Cohen, link here
  
There is a short documentary from “Music and Memory Project” called “The Story of Henry” here:
  
A variation of this report on WJLA (ABC affiliate) in Washington DC mentioned a facility in Ashburn VA, but the closest I could find online was a facility that treats learning issues and autism in Middleburg VA, “A Place to Be”, link


There is an article on volunteering with music therapy on a site called “Lots of Helping Hands” here.

This would seem to be a hidden employment or income strategy for some musicians.
