Testimonials:


-(From May, 2015)- Thank you so much!! My Alzheimer's residents absolutely LOVE the videos you have made! The Gardens, Blossoms and Blooms video is one they especially love. It's relaxing for them and they always comment on how beautiful the flowers are. It's great sensory stimulation for those who are in the late stages of Alzheimer's as well. Staff loves it too!


I also played the “Sing Along with Your Old Favorites” DVD for my Alzheimer's residents and it was a big hit with them!! I saw their faces light up, some started singing and dancing in their chairs… it makes me happy to see them happy!! :) May God bless all your efforts!! There is now a new group of residents that are enjoying your videos. The Gardens, Blossoms & Blooms video has always been a huge hit with my residents, and it still is, with all of our new residents. The new residents love the sing-a-long video too!


Stephanie F., Activity Director- Alzheimer's Unit, Island Lake, IL


-“I have never seen anything like these videos! They take you into another world of beauty and music, and you are left with a feeling of peace and contentment that is hard to find in the world today. Jim has a special sensitivity towards life, and for blending music, video, and nature’s soothing sounds. I wish him great success and all good things for the future.”                                Janet S. Newport, RI.

 

-“When I received your videos I went straight home to watch them. They are wonderful. The music and visuals took me to a whole new place. At times my eyes filled so I had to wipe them to see clearly! I sat in the dark and really imagined that I was experiencing the places that I saw. I can’t thank you enough for these tapes.”

                                                                            Barbara H., Orlando, FL.

 

-“Living on Cape Cod, I sometimes forget how beautiful it truly is! This tape (“Autumn on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard) brings home, in living color and great classical music, how wonderful it is to live here. Jim has captured the essence of Cape Cod with a wonderfully creative and artistic presentation. I really enjoyed this new look at my favorite place!”

                                                                            Helen D., Hyannisport, MA.

 

-“These nature/stress-reduction videos are most remarkable presentations. They are totally relaxing and make you feel you are standing there amidst all of the four seasons. They are video and audio treasures!”

                                                                            Cynthia S., Delaware.

 

 -“I just watched your stress-reduction videos, and I LOVED THEM!!! I have a very high-stress job, and they really will help me. My favorite is “Gardens, Blossoms, and Blooms.”                                                             Deirdre R., Court Clerk, Los Angeles, CA.

 

-“Just by slipping in the Christmas Hearth video, the room instantly takes on a cozy and festive atmosphere for all of our family and friends throughout the holiday season! It is a real plus when entertaining, but does NOT need a party to be appreciated. It can be enjoyed anytime!”             Joan V., CT.

-“They are like a ray of sunshine in my life! When I am despondent, upset, sorrowful, or in pain, they help me to relax and forget about those things. These tapes bring back wonderful memories of days gone by, of walking in the country, of raking leaves, and so many other pleasant memories as well. Thank you so much for these videos.”

                                                                             Margaret V., Boston, MA.

 

 -“I get an excellent response to your videos! I use them with patients who are experiencing sleepless nights here at the clinic. They watch them and it seems to really relax them and clam them down. The Four Seasons and Cape Cod tapes are really beautiful. And the Aquarium and Ocean Waves tapes are very “hypnotic”! I am grateful to have these tapes in our library here at the center. Thank you for making such high-quality videos.”                     

                                                                             Rae T., The Betty Ford Center, Rancho Mirage, CA.

 

-“People in wheelchairs sometimes can’t get out to see the beauty of nature anymore. These tapes take us to places we may never see again by ourselves. Thank you.”

                                                                            Jim L., New York, NY.

 

-“What great tapes! I am really impressed with the quality of work from STB Productions. As a former teacher and library-media specialist, I can see endless possibilities for classroom use with these tapes. They are truly “video field trips” through your TV screen.”
