I know this thread is from a long time ago but I wanted to contribute. We just started this program yesterday. I think the best part I can see if that a younger staff will be able to use it as a tool to better connect with an ageing population. You also set up a profile for a resident and they can learn to touch their picture and see the options we load for them to make it less confusing and easy to understand. From what i see, the repetition of it will help them learn how to use it and interact with it and best of all, they can see their family on it. The family can use Skype, they can message it directly, they can save videos to it for things like convincing dad to take a shower or reminding mom that she has an appointment at the salon on Thursday at three. You are right that you can do a lot of this stuff on a iPad but someone from apple doesn't come to the building to set it up, they don't walk your staff through how to use it, they don't come back out for refresher training's, they don't have an IT dept you can easily call to troubleshoot issues. It also is presented in such a way that it is very intuitive. It has content that is constantly updated and they have full length movies, plenty of music, the TV turns into a whole fish thank they can see and feed the fish, even interacting with fish and making ripples int he water. It is very different and so far seems to be quite awesome in how we can approach healthcare and use technology for really great innovative advances in approaches to dementia, Alzheimer's, people with behaviors, sun downing, just all of it!

School Days Reminiscing Cards

I’ve made multiple sets now. I did the school, professional life, growing up, being a kid, being an adult, etc. once you start thinking about it, it gets fun and easier!! One group included the question, what’s the worst gift you have ever received? That one was a blast!!!

School Days Reminiscing Cards

I have recently made these for care staff/nurses to do with the residents over the night shifts so they have a chance to bond and I made them on large postcards with big pictures on one side and the question on the other side. I love this list of questions!

Movie Night: Revisiting Man's First Steps on the Moon

October Sky and Hidden Figures are also good for this theme.
