testimonial 2

"It's brought so much understanding and engagement... it's moments like that that you know you come away from you think this is really beneficial and it just aids and recognizes the incredible work that I'm sure lots of teams are already doing but it puts into one place that family can access and that has more scope to grow and evolve."

testimonial 3

"I think there's a distinct benefit using it digitally because we're able to tap into other forms of engagement, we're able to listen to music, we're able to share videos and voice recordings, and the family is able to connect to it and input it consistently."

"Anyone we talk to about it, staff members, they seem to get it and really buy into the value and the potential of it."

testimonial 5

"It's been just wonderful doing it with people and seeing how much patients have enjoyed it, but also some patients who were saying very little and verbalizing very little, how they've been able to engage in it with different ways so through the music side of things."

"The visuals on the platform itself are very clear, very digestible, it's not over complicated, it's nice and simple; you can tell there's a lot of hard work that's been done to make it dementia friendly."
