A 27 minute DVD movie presentation of over 260 still photos of domestic animals: horses, ponies, donkeys, dogs, cattle, sheep, goats, birds (ducks, geese, chickens and peacocks), alpacas, pigs and a few rabbits, camels, and cats. Accompanied by background music and occasional animal and bird sounds – no captions or narration, to enable easy viewing and listening, and reminiscence.
Originally produced for dementia patients, the DVDs are also enjoyed by aged care residents and staff, used in activities, and are found to be very beneficial for high care, palliative care and Sundowner’s Syndrome patients. Additionally, the benefits have flowed over into other areas as well reducing stress, calming, modifying behaviour, providing a new focus and managing pain.
This DVD is certain to bring back memories for those who have travelled, lived on farms, gone to agricultural shows or have enjoyed the company of pets.
Photographed mostly in Australia, there are also photos from Argentina, Austria, England,Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Thailand, The Netherlands, the USA and Wales. Ideal for armchair travel.
There are also a few quirky things for observant people to pick up while watching the DVD e.g. the fake Dalmatian dog and the two black & white calves who have ear tags which spell out a famous Arnott’s biscuit.
Duration: approximately 27 minutes.
