Digital Memory Jogger

It’s said ‘A picture paints a thousand words’, and I find that over the course of time memories tend to blur slightly. We have thousands of photos stored in the cloud, and for a long time have wanted a way to see them more often. We found a digital display frame in a charity shop, and now all our memories are available to see.

This would be a lovely idea for someone elderly, or someone with dementia. Imagine being able to save memories and have them shared randomly at leisure. You could even take a photo of their favourite things, such as a favourite book or meal to remind them of what they enjoy most. ( Good to help someone with dementia retain a sense of identity).

When these digital display frames first came on to the market they were cheaper, now they retail from £49 upwards. I think they make a perfect gift for someone, especially if they are living in a residential or nursing home and don’t need ‘stuff’.

Whilst I appreciate they are a costly gift if you share the cost with other family members these digital display frames make a lovely gift for anyone at any time of the year.

These frames are also a relaxing alternative to TV and I know several care homes use them to share photos of activities residents have enjoyed. Many of them have the capacity to store thousands of photos in a compact and easy to view way. Also, ideal where space is limited.
