Video Content for Extended Care Facilities (ECF)

The first video on this page is a brief overview of this content offering. Three categories of video music entertainment and music therapy information are provided so ECFs can offer music entertainment and Music Therapy videos to their residents and patients. With visitors and services being restricted in many health care facilities, this content was requested of David Putano, a Toledo, OH music therapist. David has 25+ years of clinical music therapy work, ECF entertainment as well as music therapy education for professionals and families.

Each category has a short explanation video as well as a very short clip of an actual video offering in that category.
