The Simple Music Player & FM / DAB Radio combines both radio and music functionality in a single package.
When we set out to create an accessible radio for people with dementia, it was important to us that we consult the community. Through lengthy feedback and collaboration with people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, we developed a unique personal listening device that does more than play music, it empowers you to enjoy your favourite soundbites.
Blending a retro-nostalgic aesthetic with a contemporary modern finish, this radio is a family favourite. Every detail represents research and refinement. From the stark white colour against grey accents that provides greater visibility and ease of use, to unique button tones that help people identify features based on sound, Relish Radio minimizes confusion and maximizes independence.
The personalisation panel on top of the radio allows for unique station presets to be programmed. Whether your preference is the ‘Swinging 60s’, ‘Relaxing Afternoons’, or even ‘Talk Radio’ this feature helps you truly make it your own.
Relish Radio provides an easy-to-use control panel and large buttons for clarity, a volume dial that will never reach zero to ensure the user always knows it’s on, and a 3-watt speaker system for an optimum listening experience.
Music is a powerful tool for improving the well-being of people with dementia, allowing them to connect with their past and people in their present with its ability to light up memories. As well as reducing agitation and distress, recent findings suggest that musical training delays cognitive decline and promotes brain plasticity in the elderly brain.
Tune into their favourite station and enjoy the sound of someone humming, whistling or singing along. You may even see an impromptu twirl or foot-tapping, symptomatic of an impulsive expression of contentment, relaxation, and happiness.
One of the features of the dementia radio is a USB port for your own playlist. How does this feature work?
MP3* music files need to be downloaded onto a USB stick which is then inserted into the back of the music player and concealed with the back panel. The number of songs that can be stored will depend on the size of the USB you use. A 4MB USB can usually store around 250 songs. When the person wishes to listen to their own music, they simply press the "My Playlist" button on the top panel of the music player. Please refer to the manual which accompanies the radio for guidance on how to download music.
The radio does not currently support music downloaded via Mac.
*Music must be downloaded as MP3 files only
Please tell me more about the USB and which one to use
We suggest using a USB V3.0 or 2.0 - format this to FAT32 and ensure you do this prior to loading music onto the USB. Please only use a USB up to 32GB, this will be ample for 2000+ songs to be stored.
Can the playlist songs be skipped forward with the simple buttons?
No this can only be done from the back of the radio as it has been designed to be as simple as possible.
Can the playlist be used for Audiobooks?
This is not currently suitable for audio books; it has been designed for radio and a music player (with a USB stick) only.
What frequencies can the radio be tuned to?
UK: The radio can be tuned to stations on FM, DAB and DAB+. This does not connect to AM stations or other Satellite frequencies.
Is it easy to set up?
Instructions are within the manual on how to do this. Once the 3 favourite radio stations have been set up and a USB loaded with music (MP3 format) the radio will be ready to use for the person with dementia, using the buttons on the top of the radio only.
How long do the batteries last?
Using premium batteries, and playing the radio every day with the volume set at bar 3/4 the batteries will last for 100+ hours. Mixing the use of the player between the "my playlist" and radio and varying the level of the volume may reduce how many hours the batteries will last.
Can I download music from Itunes onto the USB
Yes this can be done, however the files will need to be converted to MP3 to be compatible with the music player.
