Radio + MP3 Music Player for Seniors & those w/ DementiaYou asked. We listened. And the result is music to all of our ears.
When Relish set out to create an accessible radio for people with Dementia, it was important to consult the community. Through lengthy feedback and collaboration with people living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Relish developed a unique personal listening device that does more than play music, it empowers all to enjoy their favorite music.
Introducing Relish Radio.
Blending a retro-nostalgic aesthetic with a contemporary modern finish, this radio is a family favorite. Every detail represents research and refinement. From the stark white color 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.
Individuality was not overlooked.
The personalization panel on top of the radio allows for unique station pre-sets to be programmed. Whether their preference is the ‘Swinging 60s’, ‘Relaxing Afternoons’, or even ‘Talk Radio’ this feature helps you truly make it their 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 stress, recent findings suggest that that musical training delays cognitive decline and promotes brain plasticity in the elderly brain.
Tune into their favorite 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.
