Husband with dementia able to reconnect with wife

A husband living with dementia who doesn't speak has finally been able to reconnect with his wife - using a combination of sights and sounds in a 'Music Memory Box'. The 'Music Memory Box' is a kit which families fill with objects, photographs and music once significant in the lives of dementia sufferers. The technology within the box then enables songs to be played by moving the objects into the centre of the space. The combination of sound, a tangible object and photographs of the particular memory have seen incredible reactions from patients who otherwise struggle to communicate - including those living with dementia or similar conditions.
