The Unforgettable product range was created to make life easier for people with dementia and memory loss. Here’s a few reasons why our products are so special
They came from real life experience
Unforgettable was founded by James Ashwell who cared for his mum Fay when she was diagnosed with early onset dementia. Having experienced first-hand the practical issues that people living with dementia and their caregivers can face, James was determined to find some creative solutions.
James says: “I passionately believe that products and technology can make a huge difference to life on the dementia journey, helping people to live a bit better. With this in mind, I was determined that Unforgettable would become a place where everybody could find the best possible dementia products at the best possible price. And if those products didn’t exist… we would make them ourselves.
This is exactly what we’ve done
They were designed with YOUR help
When creating brand new innovative products, it’s important to consult widely. So when, for example, we were developing The Unforgettable Music Player & Digital Radio we consulted more than 300 people with dementia and their caregivers to make sure that our music player fulfilled all the most important needs of our community. That’s why our music player is designed to allow you to choose the level of control you want. For those who need a little extra help, the large coloured buttons are easy to operate. For those who find too many controls confusing, all the buttons can be hidden, apart from the on/off switch. And because music is such a person experience for everyone, we’ve made it easy to create a personalised playlist.
Adam Vaughan who is Head of New Product and Innovation says: “We’re very proud that the new music player translates the insights we have learnt from our community into such a special, beautifully designed product.”
They help you overcome the most common dementia challenges
It’s no surprise to us that Unforgettable product are in big demand. Not only have we kept the prices as low as possible, but the products themselves have been carefully selected to address the most common areas of need and frustration that people with dementia – and those who love them – face regulary.
That’s why the Unforgettable range includes:
A clock – The Unforgettable 2-in-1 Calendar & Day Clock helps ease anxiety and confusion about time and day. It’s also very useful for people with mild memory loss or vision problems.
A music player – our new Music Player & Digital Radio, already a best seller, helps to improve quality or life, eases loneliness and allows people with dementia to remain in control of the music they listen to.
A GPS tracker – Unforgettable’s Personal Alarm & GPS Tracker helps to keep loved ones safe and independent while they’re out and about, while also giving peace of mind to loved ones.
An enjoyable hobby – Your Unforgettable Life Story book is a beautifully designed unique product, making it easier than ever for people with memory loss to tell the story of their life. The book has been specially designed with memory prompts to spark vivid storytelling and capture precious memories in a fun, flexible way.
PLUS: Support for caregivers – we’ve also developed several products to support those who are caring for loved ones with dementia, including our Caregivers’ Journal, an inspirational Book of Calm and pampering products to help with sleep and relaxation.
