ZINNIA TV for Cognitive Issues
by Lynne Peer
This is a great resource for seniors who are experiencing cognitive decline and their caregivers.
What is Zinnia TV?
Zinnia TV is a growing collection of gently-paced videos designed to
create an enjoyable viewing experience for people who might find
regular TV challenging. Our videos can enhance a sense of comfort
and identity. When watched together with a care partner or a friend,
Zinnia TV generates meaningful opportunities for connection.
Make the most of Zinnia TV programming by choosing a topic of
high interest. Our videos allow viewers to take a walk in the woods,
a trip to Paris, or reminisce over time spent working in the garden,
baking or fishing. When paused, these scenes can be used to spark
conversations and increase interaction. There are also fun,
interactive videos, like Famous Faces and What do you Think?, and
videos that encourage activities of daily living, like Let’s Eat Lunch,
Let’s Get Clean and Stay Hydrated.
