Exploring Topics of Interest

Conversing with people that have memory loss can be challenging, especially as their communication skills decline. Members of the care team can make connections by exploring images, videos, and audio clips that encourage reminiscing. Cargivers can search for images and interesting facts that initiate conversations about careers, hobbies, travel, and more.

Searching the Web with Safari

The goal of using images for reminiscing is to spark a conversation. Care teams often utilize family photo albums and scrapbooks for this type of reminiscing. 

The tablet is not intended to replace physical images; instead, digital images can be used to complement or augment the care recipient’s past experiences.

There are hundreds of millions of images on the web, and by using detailed search terms, caregivers can uncover images that are highly likely to resonate. Whether you are searching for a specific image - such as a “light blue 1957 Nash Cosmopolitan”, or a general category of images - such as “popular hairstyles from the 1950s,” there is an endless supply of photos that can be used to spark memories. 

Safari is the default web browser on the iPad, and it is a great tool for exploring topics. Other popular apps, such as Google Earth and Instagram, can be extremely useful for exploring images. You can find detailed descriptions and links to download these apps on your Care Team Tablet in the Self-Service App Store.
