Virtual Reality for People with Dementia

by Sandra Hastings

A Virtual Reality application that displays scenes that would be familiar and comforting for people living with dementia.

Recent trials have shown the impact of Virtual Reality when shown to older people living with Dementia. The results were outstanding. However the technology for traditional VR is expensive and therefore prohibitive to care and activity providers. This app would allow anyone with a smart phone and a VR headset (available from under £20) to access images and scenes which could stimulate memory as well as providing comfort and reassurance to people with dementia or any memory loss.

A good idea, but the person using it would need a lot of support.

Excellent movement but need to be aware of epilepsy, heart problems etc. I used VR the other day but found few Apps that were of calming nature for dementia
