Bring joy and happiness to long-term care by co-building an immersive experience program
Aperçu du projet
People living in long-term care (LTC) homes are often socially isolated. Evidence shows virtual reality (VR) can be used to support the mental health of older adults. Virtual programming supports access to meaningful activities that may help combat boredom and loneliness. People living with dementia may not tolerate traditional VR goggles, so implementing VR in LTC homes can be challenging. This study will offer a new, inclusive model where a low-cost and accessible virtual program can be co-created with and for people living with dementia to ensure meaningful impact of VR in that context.
