How we help

For people facing cognitive challenges, standard TV programming can trigger confusion, distress, and daytime sleeping. Exploring a meaningful topic on Zinnia TV can soothe, delight, and reinforce a person’s sense of identity.

Our videos help care partners connect more deeply with the person they support by providing valuable insight into the person’s interests and passions. And our growing library of enrichment videos include sing-alongs, read-alongs, conversation starters, trivia games, and support for daily tasks.

Praise from Care Partners

"What a blessing and a gift this TV station is. You can watch things together, you can talk about things together, and you don’t have to focus on a relationship the person doesn’t remember."

Teepa Snow
Positive Approach to Care
"What a goldmine Zinnia TV is! I have been my 86-year-old mother's full-time care partner since she was diagnosed. We watched the Fresh Air conversation video and she read the titles, asked questions, and expressed her thoughts."

“I can say that for sure it has a positive impact on people with dementia and is something that many care providers will use.”

“My client becomes distracted really easily. I had no idea that she likes dogs! I showed her the Dogs video and she got so excited--she had never communicated that to me, so it was really interesting to make that discovery.”

Designed to connect

Meaningful recollection

Zinnia TV helps people stay connected to who they are, who they were, and what they love. Familiar topics, interests, locations and even sound effects enhance meaning, engagement and connection.

Simulated Presence Therapy

SPT can be an effective tool for soothing agitation and providing support when family members can’t be present. Our Friendly Greetings videos are interspersed with comforting, uplifting messages that help alleviate loneliness.

Deeper connection

Caregivers report that our videos can increase their connection with the people they support by providing insight into their interests and hobbies, as well as inspiring discussion, play, singing and laughter.

Immersive experiences

Made by artists, our videos are crafted to be beautiful, slow paced, easy to see and easy to process. They draw people in with a subtle internal logic that moves through time and place without the burden of plot or dialogue.
