"Photavia is a vehicle that can be used to bring people together, to share common experiences, rekindle memories and to forge new associations or friendships. The human connection can not be discounted.”

“The patient’s attention is focused on Photavia programming rather than focused on pain, which aids in recovery.”

"PHOTAVIA can make an activity director’s life easier because it’s another tool that we didn’t have before and it’s something really different.
Sometimes when a resident’s having a difficult day if we take them and sit them down and we can center them on PHOTAVIA it can help reduce the need to give them a drug to settle them down."

"I remember seeing my very first V-Clip, and seeing the picture of the sailor kissing the nurse. I remember seeing that picture a thousand times before, but it had never been curated for me before. After that one V-Clip I saw the others, and all of a sudden, here we have historical moments in time that were coming to life and it provided an experience where it was almost intentionally rewarding, it was okay to pause for a couple of minutes and watch and observe TV without it being a waste of time. It was also technologically driven, because here was something that we have seen in print, and it was digital now, and it was coming to life.”

From Our President:
We began developing our content because of a love of art, history and especially The LIFE Picture Collection.
Our founder was very close to the collection and owned one of only a handful of art galleries in the world that was authorized to sell prints from the collection.
The vision for PHOTAVIA's content was to work anywhere where people may be waiting. Then it grew.
Engaging, educational, art, history, and very therapeutic.
We started testing in Healthcare, Senior Living and beyond.
We found we can be a life-long learning tool and Reminisce vehicle. PHOTAVIA creates a hybrid video tool that delivers programming for "better living through imagery."
Currently we are focused on delivering to Healthcare, Senior Living, Memory Care and Alzheimer's markets.
We are also in the Hospitality industry being shown in the lobby of The Crowne Plaza in Wauwatosa, WI for the past three years and we recently expanded to the Education world as we have been present in Whitnall High School in Greenfield, WI since the fall semester 2019.
