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.”
Mum loves this DVD and even waived her hands along with the music which was lovely to see. It is very colourful and charming.
Recognii DVD: I bought this for my husband to try and occupy him as he has started trying to get up and follow me around the house and getting anxious when I leave him. It definitely keeps his attention much more than normal television which is too complicated for him now. He especially likes the fireworks and red arrows and also likes the children. I like that it is all short clips as his attention span is very short. At the beginning he wanted me to watch it with him but now hes familiar with it he is happy to watch it on his own. It is a bit expensive but I would recommend.

Carol Burrows, Merseyside
Mum really enjoyed the little toddler with the curls, who grabbed the hand puppet to give it a kiss and cuddle!
She loved the two little girls dancing and was amused by the chicks stepping out to music! She Liked ALL the young animals because they're so cute, end enjoyed the time lapse films of flowers especially. She also like the two grown ups in bear/panda costumes, especially when speeded up and chasing each other, The singing was just right, and good for her to try and recognise the photos of past celebs, too, especially as you gave her the answers when she couldn't remember their names! This is such a joy. I can tell how much time and effort has gone into making this!
Orla Phipps, Dementia advocate
"Grandma absolutely LOVES this wonderful DVD from Recognii, she asks to watch it again and again."
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!!
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.
