Hi Rita, depending on the stage the client is, he may like to listen to Talking Books which you may borrow from your local library (find out what genre he likes). Also, find out what kind of music he likes and if not possible play Top 40s music from the time he was between 20 to 30 years old. Be aware that he may be very happy or very sad, and it is o.k. to be sad. If he cries he is releasing hidden emotions. Sit with him and hold his hand for a while.
