Engaging Dementia Seniors With Therapeutic Videos

todayMarch 18, 2023

Allyson Schrier joins Suzanne to talk about the Zinnia TV app, helping people thrive beyond their diagnosis, with the aim of both the caregiver and the person receiving care to thrive. The meaning of the flower zinnia is “Memories of a Forgotten Friend.”

The Zinnia TV app has more than 180 research-driven videos that are digestible and appealing for people in mid- to late stages of dementia. Watching the videos serves to create opportunities to talk and share. There are a variety of channels, opportunities for people to be successful and help support activities of daily living. There are videos about, for example, drinking water. It’s not about how to do it, but seeing people, cats, geese and more drinking water and enjoying it. Caregivers play that video five or six times a day as a point of conversation to prompt the senior to have a glass of water.

Zinnia TV subscriptions are just $6.99/month, or $69.99/year, with a two-week free trial. Learn more at Zinnia TV.
