"PHOTAVIA can make an activity director’s life easier because it’s another tool that we didn’t have before and it’s something really different.
Sometimes when a resident’s having a difficult day if we take them and sit them down and we can center them on PHOTAVIA it can help reduce the need to give them a drug to settle them down."

"I remember seeing my very first V-Clip, and seeing the picture of the sailor kissing the nurse. I remember seeing that picture a thousand times before, but it had never been curated for me before. After that one V-Clip I saw the others, and all of a sudden, here we have historical moments in time that were coming to life and it provided an experience where it was almost intentionally rewarding, it was okay to pause for a couple of minutes and watch and observe TV without it being a waste of time. It was also technologically driven, because here was something that we have seen in print, and it was digital now, and it was coming to life.”
