Hi Barry
My mum has advanced severe dementia and is now unable to move unaided. We have hours of wonderful calm time together with the DVDs which fill her lounge with birdsong and the relaxing sounds of the woods and river. They have replaced the lovely long walks we used to take together and we are still excited each time we spot the deer or the mother duck and her troupe of ducklings.

Calmer by Nature and Calmer by the Water have brought a bit more quality time into our lives.

Best regards

“The home where my husband is should try this....may I show it to them?.....it would really allow the older people to remember happy times - a conversation starter - it's so difficult sometimes to find things to talk about when people have forgotten - this would help make it easier.”

Manageress of Retirement Home, Judy said:

"Played it in the afternoon and the evening to the residents, it made them relaxed and sleepy, but this did not worry them, as it would have, had they have missed anything when they wake like other films or programmes on the TV. A blind resident said she enjoyed the nice sounds of birds, etc. They found the film 'very calming and peaceful."

Calmer By Nature DVD Calms & Engages People

February 8, 2010 by Alzheimer's Speaks

Check out Calmer By Nature

On the website you will find a trailer to preview the DVD.  Sometimes I have it running in the background in my office just so I can listen to the wonderful sounds of nature while I'm working.  I find it soothing especially during one of our Minnesota snow storms; to hear the loons, ducks and the birds… it's truly amazing and lifts me out of any cold funk I'm in.  I brought the DVD to the nursing home where my Mom lives and it was so fun to watch the reactions of residents.  Everyone on Mom's community has Alzheimer's disease.  Mom being in her end stages, but she still reacted to the sounds of nature.  I'm sure how much she can really see anymore, but she definitely can still hear.  It was amazing to watch a smile creep on her face and this contentment takes over her.  Other residents enjoyed watching and listening to the nature scenes.

I give this DVD a big thumbs up.  Who of us can't use a bit more calm in our life. This DVD works it magic on most anyone.
