It’s really good for calming people down so they stop feeling lost. The entire dining hall goes from high stress to this wonderful moment of silence when Zinnia TV starts playing.

"This became a critical tool for us"

"I do consultations with families around the world, and I can't tell you the number of times when a care partner might say 'I just need ten minutes to do something but my person/loved one is shadowing me all the time' and we talk about using Zinnia TV."

Carolyn Lukert
PAC Consultant and Support Mentor

Positive Approach to Care

"This is a multi-generational tool"

"We use [Zinnia TV] very intentionally. With the creative engagement side of Aging Wisdom, it's very tailored to a person's strengths and it's tied to an individual's interests and personal history. We've absolutely loved having it at our fingertips."

Lori La Bey is a care partner for her mother and the Founder/ Host of Alzheimer’s Speaks. Lori led a discussion about Dementia and the Zinnia TV support tool with an a panel of experts, including Co-Founder Allyson Schrier, University of WA neuropsychologist Carolyn Parsey, Keri Pollock of the home care agency Aging Wisdom and Carolyn Lukert, PAC Consultant & Mentor and care partner for her own mother.

"Zinnia TV helps our residents be more engaged in their lives and their day and what is going on around them"

"We have a resident who gets very anxious later in the day and upset and it’s hard for her to be around others. I went in her room with her and plugged my tablet into her TV and we watched the baking video and gardening. She separated from her anxiety and we talked about the videos and she was really engaged and I was amazed. I would highly recommend Zinnia TV for other Sunrise communities."

Rachel L.
Enrichment Director

"Zinnia TV makes my job easier"

"I know Zinnia TV works to keep people engaged. I can reliably put it on and run out of the room. We need to leave the room for a few minutes from time to time and like using Zinnia TV better than YouTube or a music video. Really valuable – would be useful in another community."

Natalie H.
Enrichment Director
"I would definitely recommended Zinnia TV to other communities – even if they only use it to ease transitions. We know we can count on Zinnia TV to be the antidote to her sadness."

Molly S.
Activity Assistant
"It kind of gets people out of their head. It’s really good for calming people down so they stop feeling lost, or wondering what’s going on, or where am I supposed to be. 'I’m just here in this moment watching horses and listening to soothing music.' The entire dining hall goes from high stress to this wonderful moment of silence when Zinnia TV starts playing."
