Video Respite Collection
Developed from research at the University of Utah, this series of thirteen Video Respite DVDs affords a very accessible way to deliver meaningful therapy to people with dementia including Alzheimer’s disease.
The actors in these thirteen videos become real friends to those watching. As they converse or sing together, while they reminisce about times past, you are able to have some time away from your caregiver role, time to get dinner on the table, to read a book, or spend time with your children.
Available individually or in a set of thirteen.
We have a collection of professionally produced videos that deal, at least in part, in the eras that many seniors are very familiar with. For example, younger people today probably don’t know what a Burma Shave Jingle is, but most people in their 70s and 80s likely do. And people with Alzheimer’s disease have better memories of their younger days than they do of today. That is what makes nostalgia and reminiscing so powerful.
