My Life TV offers a unique solution for care homes and care providers, supporting staff to deliver high quality, person-centred care. The on demand wellbeing and care tool, available on any internet connected device, is specifically designed for people living with dementia and those who care for them. It contains over 170 hours of content, created and curated to meet the cognitive needs of people living with dementia.
There is a rich mix of content, from stimulating activities for individuals or groups, including sing-a-longs, quizzes, chair yoga and art classes, through to relevant reminiscence programmes and joyful entertainment, all accessible at any time of day and night. From Bryce Forsyth’s Generation Game to Gardener’s World, Blue Peter and Delia, there are favourites taken from the nation’s archives. There’s an abundance of content to help continue people’s personal interests and hobbies – and to spark new ones – from nature, wildlife and animals, to painting and poetry, ballroom dancing to birdwatching, cookery to crafts, cars and cross stitch, through to travel, sports and music.
Subscribers can find something that is perfect for the moment, the mood and the situation.
The platform supports and enables reminiscence – so important for the elderly and for individuals living with dementia – taking people back, to recollect fond memories and times gone by. There is a wealth of content, from Reminiscence with Jan, to historic programmes, like A Year to Remember, taking in key moments including the Queen’s coronation and England winning the world cup, as well as other stimulus to provoke memories and create conversation. Your staff may not remember or understand how life was in the past, but users often comment that My Life TV enables staff to get to know their residents better, as well as helping families to enjoy time with their loved ones, creating new memories and inspiring conversations.
My Life TV works with trusted, expert partners, including Alzheimer’s Society, BBC Archive, National Trust, BFI and NAPA (National Activity Providers Association), as well as engaging with subscribers and users, to ensure the platform adds real value, is dementia-centred and grounded in supporting best practice care. It is one of the reasons My Life TV has been cited as supporting outstanding care delivery by CQC (Care Quality Commission).
