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.
