Photavia Senior Care Benefits

Hear from an Activity Director at a top senior living facility the many ways Photavia has helped their residents and staff. Pat Durham of Heritage at Deer Creek was one of the first people in the country to advocate for PHOTAVIA and it's "A Moment in Time" Series and now she is a NAAP Award winner. The National Association of Activity Professionals (NAAP) recently awarded Pat with the "Activity Professional of the Year" in 2020. Pat is an amazing caregiver, advocate and leader and we are very proud of her accomplishments and thankful for her support of our programming. Pat is currently the Life Enrichment Director at Heritage and we look forward to seeing what other innovations she brings to Heritage in the future as the Caregivers world is changing rapidly. On a side note, Ms. Durham was also named the 2016 Wisconsin Activity Director of the Year __________________________________________ As a first adopter Pat share's her findings about PHOTAVIA: ". . . when residents sit down to watch PHOTAVIA, it brings them to the attention of the screen, so even if their mind has been wandering, we can jog them back to being with us. And that can be a big deal for people – to remember and know that they remembered.” “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.”

PHOTAVIA is a tool that offers an experience that is equal parts

Interesting. Calming. Unifying. Educating. Healing.

"One of the key challenges — and opportunities — in teaching history today is using digital technology to help us learn from the past."

"Photavia is a vehicle that can be used to bring people together, to share common experiences, rekindle memories and to forge new associations or friendships. The human connection can not be discounted.”

“The patient’s attention is focused on Photavia programming rather than focused on pain, which aids in recovery.”

"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.”
