Both advanced age and dementia impact a person’s ability to see. Make sure that the viewer is close enough to the screen.
When possible, let the viewer choose the videos they’d like to watch. Learning their interests creates opportunities for conversations later.
For the best experience, play videos in Full-Screen mode. Just click the Full-Screen button at the bottom right corner of any video.
To watch on your TV, we recommend using an Amazon Fire TV Stick or AirPlay from an Apple device. Learn more
Competing sounds (and visuals) can distract the viewer, undermining the ability of Zinnia TV to soothe and engage.
The best experience of all is watching Zinnia TV together, pausing for questions and conversation.
If the videos are flowing by too quickly, click the Settings widget at the bottom right of the video player and select a slower speed (0.75x or 0.5x).
Now and then, we recommend you try muting our videos’ sound. Or, to perk things up, play the viewers’ favorite music while you watch.
