I purchased this player when we had to move my father to a memory care facility. He was used to me putting on his favorite CD's on a CD player all day, but he wouldn't be able to do that on his own when he moved. I loaded 25 of his favorite CD's. I used an external drive to load them to my computer, then easily transferred them to the player. He's not a fan of big band music, which came preloaded, so I just moved those files off the player to my computer. The player is so easy for him to use. I bought good quality headphones and he listens to music all day - even when he has the TV on. We got the green one, and it's an attractive decorative item for his room. It's a perfect product for music lovers!
Works fantastic, limited space

A former member of our church is now confined to an assisted living facility, and had reached the point where using a player was becoming challenging (but he does not have dementia). I bought the SMPL mp3 player, loaded it up with 237 sermons, and he's extremely happy using it. I only wish it had an 8 GB flash drive rather than 4 GB. I had 293 sermons available I could have loaded, had to leave a number of them off because of limited space. <br> <br> Wonderful! 4 GB can usually hold thousands of songs, audio books and recordings. If you need additional space for longer sermons, we recommend either compressing the files to maximize the space available, or consider our SMPL Music Player w/ Radio (https://www.alzstore.com/simple-music-player-radio-seniors-dementia-p/2125.htm) which allows an included 8GB USB Stick to be used which can be expanded to fit as many files as you need. Hope this helps! - The Alzheimer's Store

Purchased this for my mom as she had trouble navigating a CD player. She is able to turn this on and off easily, and I have been adding new MP3 music files to it to expand the collection. Very easy to set the volume. I would definitely recommend this player to anyone who has an elderly relative, even if they aren't cognitively impaired...it's so easy to use. Thank you for developing and offering this product!

Bought the Simple Music Player in green for my Grandmother. She loves it! She admires it often. She comments on how easy it is to use. We both enjoy the preloaded music that it came with. Was a little tricky figuring out how to adjust the sound at first but do like that the volume can't be easily changed. Highly recommend the Simple Music Player!
A Walk To Help Remember

The look on my Mom's face when playing these oldies was priceless. I am not sure if she remembered anything specific, but it put a look of contentment and fondness fo a fleeting moment a piece of her past.
