What people say about Recognii
Mary Merheim, founder of Dementia Doulas
Oh my gosh I love your DVD! I've played it to two clients with very different dementia and it was a hit both times! With the first we used it as discussion point and he was on the edge of his seat for the next clip!
Jane Baker, Carer to husband Kenneth, 83
“An excellent aid. Contents are engaging and fun. Colours are excellent and the DVD covered many topics. We used it again and again”
Fiona Wade, Howarth
“My mum loved this video. She found it engaging and funny and kept laughing. She sang along to all the songs, and knew the words, it was colourful and each bit was not too long and held her attention. We will play it again and again to her. It's a real success - thank you.”
Dr Lucy Pollock, Geriatrician and author of 'The Book about Getting Older'
“This is just lovely. The DVD is
the sort of thing that can be watched over and over by people with significant dementia. In the same way that small children like replaying their
favourites, these images with music become very soothing with familiarity. Even
those with significant dementia can find repeated routines comforting. Well done!!
Orla Phipps, Dementia advocate
"Grandma absolutely LOVES this wonderful DVD from Recognii, she asks to watch it again and again."
Dave Rowntree, (carer to wife Pat, 82)
It was a joy to see my wife smile when she watched this. She laughed and sang along to the songs. She enjoyed it much more than normal TV. I would highly recommend it.
Gillian Neil, (carer to father, Geoff, 83)
My dad loved the music, tapped his feet and whistled to all the songs. Particular favourites were the babies, dogs and the scenery, but he enjoyed it all. It was great to see him so involved in something. I would definitely recommend this
Jacqui Ashmore (carer to mother, Brenda 85)
We loved the poetry and the songs, but the film was full of surprises, you never knew what was coming next and it held our attention all the way through. The puppets were hilarious and everything was just the right length.
Sue Reynolds, Devon
My mum so enjoyed this. She's in her own little world most of the time and she really reacted and chatted when she saw the children and animals. It brought her back, thank you."
George Coxon, Owner/ Director of Pottles Court and Summercourt Care Homes, Devon
We’ve trialled copies of the DVDs and use them often - they are really popular, stimulate conversation (and singing) and are full of curiosities and quirky snippets.
