De BeleefTV Senior
De BeleefTV Senior has been specially developed for elderly people suffering from dementia. Playing games, listening to music and talking about the past are all activities that stimulate the brain and the senses. De BeleefTV makes all this possible in a positive way.
The motto of all games on De BeleefTV is: taking part is more important than winning.
By taking a positive approach, the residents of care institutions experience ‘moments of happiness’.
This makes people less aggressive, passive or restless.
With almost every game on De BeleefTV you can choose from different levels, so everyone can participate and have the opportunity to achieve success. When success is achieved, compliments are given. This adds to the feeling of happiness.
Listening to music
Important moments in our lives are often linked to music. It is therefore not surprising that music is one of the last things that the brain forgets. Music is therefore almost indispensable in creating a pleasant atmosphere in the care institution. Music can be used for relaxation, distraction or just to activate the residents.
Talking about the past
Many elderly people with dementia have a reduced short-term memory. According to the ‘law of rewinding memory’, after a while the long-term memory of the person suffering from dementia also begins to crumble. This happens from back to front: the memories of the most recent years are lost first, the memories of childhood last. As a result, people do not remember, for example, what happened yesterday, but sometimes they remember things from fifty years ago.
De BeleefTV helps to start a conversation by offering topics from the past. A study by the University of Hong Kong even shows that people with dementia who are given the opportunity to talk about the past feel better than those with whom only small talk is discussed
Various talking pictures with matching questions, old commercials and the news from the past with the recognisable polygon sound. These are all possibilities that are offered on De BeleefTV. And if you want to make it more personal, you can easily show private photos, videos and music from the past on De BeleefTV.
