A Retro TV display is just that – a digital screen with a retro surround, designed to look like the post-war TVs that the older generation will remember.
As with the Kodak digital display, the Retro TV is designed to promote nostalgia both in form and in content. It works as a stand-alone item and in the context of a reminisce room. Nostalgia therapy works very well in the care of those with dementia and this is a great addition to any dementia friendly environment. Because the age of those living with dementia can vary, we offer two styles of retro TV; a 1950s style TV and a 1970s/80s style TV. You can read more about why it's important to have a choice here.
These work particularly well in dementia friendly environments in hospitals, care homes and other public spaces. They are particularly suited to one to one therapy.
