    Taking the NextStep in Entertaining the Elderly:

    We have been pleasantly surprised with the benefits that XM Radio can provide to seniors, whether they are shut-ins, are in facilities, or just like to reminisce. Included among this satellite radio network’s hundreds of stations are 24-hour continuous music from the 1940’s; radio programs from the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s featuring Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, and other favorites; the Suspense series; the Lone Ranger; and many more. Based on communications we have received from caregivers, seniors with dementia seem to be soothed and entertained for hours by these types of programs. Available at modest cost, we believe that XM Radio is a wonderful resource for caregivers and facilities [go to the website above to click and learn more].
