You can learn a lot about a person by watching Zinnia TV together. Pause playback on scenes that spark excitement to discuss what you're seeing and enjoy a few moments of connection. Press the space bar to play and pause videos.
Some people living with mid- to late-stage dementia can't process sensory information as well or as quickly as people with healthy brains. It may improve their Zinnia TV experience if you move the screen closer and minimize room noise.
If you really want to juice things up, play their favorite music while they watch. You may need to mute the volume of the video if you are playing music from the same device.
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).
