We searched long and hard to find our Talking Photo Album Deluxe, the perfect talking photo album for reminiscing. There are other recordable albums available, but most are limited to about ten seconds of recording time per picture. This Deluxe has 200 total minutes of recording time, so you won't be restricted to a few seconds to tell your story. And the available time can be used as you see fit; for example, Use 35 minutes on one particularly memorable photograph, and only 5 minutes on one that elicits less conversation.
This album is one our favorite gift items for long-distance giving. It is also one of the best reminiscence aids we've found, one that can be completely personalized. Put some older pictures, pictures taken when you were growing up, for instance, and record your memories. Send it to a loved one, and listening to your reminiscence will likely trigger his or her own memories. This is how reminiscence therapy starts. Or send one to Dad as is. Let him select the pictures to fill it with and reminisce about. (Hint: If your brother, for example, is helping to care for Mom, this would be a great gift to send to him. Then he has a really fulfilling activity to do with her. He can even send it back to you to see the results.) For a loved one in the early stages of Alzheimer's, fill it with recent pictures to show-and-tell Mom what you've been doing since you saw her last. This is a perfect way to catch up.
Another use for the Talking Photo Album is as an instruction manual. If your parent is still able to live alone, but sometimes has trouble remembering how to operate the microwave or the dishwasher, put a picture of the appliance in the album and record verbal instructions. Instructions other than appliance operations can also be recorded(e.g., emergency contacts and other important information, Daily event schedule.Learn More

BLYS light ships free in the U.S. (SmartPost)
Blys™ is a sleek, modern light source designed with the specific needs of elderly people. Blys™ can be used as a nightlight or gentle bedroom lighting, and enables access to essential personal possessions during the night, aiding peace of mind and restful sleep.
As a nightlight it provides a low-level glow which allows un-interrupted sleep, but on waking it provides a focus in a room, allowing items such as bedside lights, spectacles, water, phone, and other personal items to be easily identified without switching the main light on.
A low level of light from the tray provides an immediate focus and sense of security if wakened during the night, whilst preventing the shock experienced when turning on conventional lighting, or the frustration of finding the light switch.
It is controlled by means of a simple touch panel. Hand contact anywhere along the main edge the unit switches on or off, and the brightness can be altered by touching two small 'bright' and 'dim' zones. Blys™ remembers its previous light setting when it's switched off.

- Morning: 7am to noon
- Afternoon: noon to 5pm
