You asked. We listened.
And the result is music to all of our ears.
When we set out to create an accessible radio for people with dementia, it was important to us that we consult the community. Through lengthy feedback and collaboration with people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, we developed a unique personal listening device that does more than play music, it empowers you to enjoy your favourite soundbites.
Introducing Relish Radio.
Blending a retro-nostalgic aesthetic with a contemporary modern finish, this radio is a family favourite. Every detail represents research and refinement. From the stark white colour against grey accents that provides greater visibility and ease of use, to unique button tones that help people identify features based on sound, Relish Radio minimizes confusion and maximizes independence.
And individuality was not overlooked.
The personalisation panel on top of the radio allows for unique station pre-sets to be programmed. Whether your preference is the ‘Swinging 60s’, ‘Relaxing Afternoons’, or even ‘Talk Radio’ this feature helps you truly make it your own.
Relish Radio provides an easy-to-use control panel and large buttons for clarity, a volume dial that will never reach zero to ensure the user always know it’s on, and a 3-watt speaker system for an optimum listening experience.
Music and Dementia
Music is a powerful tool for improving the wellbeing of people with dementia, allowing them to connect with their past and people in their present with its ability to light up memories. As well as reducing agitation and distress, recent findings suggest that that musical training delays cognitive decline and promotes brain plasticity in the elderly brain.
Tune into their favourite station and enjoy the sound of someone humming, whistling or singing along. You may even see an impromptu twirl or foot-tapping, symptomatic of an impulsive expression of contentment, relaxation, and happiness.
