Virtual Reality

Virtual reality and people with dementia.

I am not the most tech-savvy person in the world and am known for my lack of enthusiasm for telecare. Although I understand the need for safety and affordability, I also fear the lack of the human touch. Monitoring, not caring.

However, when this virtual reality project came to light I was happy to support it and champion the cause.

If you think about this, someone with fairly advanced dementia has lost pretty much most of their perception and idea of reality. This in itself, must be terrifying, to not know who or where you are and understandably leads to agitation and at times aggression. Imagine then how satisfying it must be for an innovator to create something that can be seen to reduce these symptoms. Alex Small is the man the idea of the headset being useful for people with dementia, this is what he has to say. “

“I wanted to share with you the results of our recent VR work for people living with dementia. I’m pleased to say we were nominated for an outstanding innovation award at the National Dementia Care Awards this year for the project.

We’re now about to roll it out across the Quantum Care group of homes and beyond, thanks to all their support.

If you’re interested in the project and would like to know more, please drop me an email at alex@tribemix.com. We’re looking for funding, hardware and more connections in the dementia world.

P.S. Please share the video with your friends or anyone you know who might benefit from our work. We want to help as many people living with dementia as possible. Thank you!
