Spokane, Washington (PressExposure) July 05, 2011 -- Memory Program has created interactive remote control DVD's for independent seniors and individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, first developed in an Alzheimer's unit their programs integrate popular auditory Alzheimer's activities with today's latest DVD technology.
Traditional dementia activities are limited to analog word games and book reading, with increased signs of residents struggling to engage in these types of activities due to visual and auditory impairments along with short attention spans.
MemoryPrograms.com documented and tested the current programs and integrated them into easy to use video games formats, suitable for the television screen. Nostalgic and popular information was added to engage individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia that tend to concentrate on information from their past. Using zoom options on the DVD player remote control allows for singular words to fill television screens, making it an easy to use fun learning activity.
This new readily available program for dementia residents has shown that voluntary participation rates could double and triple, and initial testing saw a significant reduction in wandering and volatile behaviors shown by those suffering from Sun downing Syndrome.
The Memory Programs system was first created in an Alzheimer's unit by an activity-program developer whose background involved working with assistive technology to successfully engage seniors in regular activity. The goal was to create a cost-effective memory program for those caring for dementia by using the existing technology available in every nursing home facility and in every living room. Memory exercises were built to engage almost every age level and mental ability including individuals in the deepest stages of Alzheimer's disease and seniors with a variety of interests.
