Memory Care Virtual Reality

How Virtual Reality Programs Help Those With Dementia

In a reality that limits those with Dementia, technology can take them to a different place and time. With a headset and a swivel chair, community residents who suffer from memory loss are able to have an all-encompassing experience doing what they used to enjoy most. From mountains to fishing boats, virtual reality can give residents the sensation of being in places they would most likely rather be. They can float over the boardwalks of Venice or ski down a mountain in Norway. Depending on the ability of each resident, they can either sit and relax, or use the controllers to play games. With stable mobility, they can use hand motions to mimic ski poles, a golf club, a bow and arrow or a bowling ball. VR is taking the limitations of a memory care environment and providing an opportunity to escape a difficult reality.

With the help of HomeAgain VR, Quail Park Memory Care residents of West Seattle are re-visiting memories, exploring the world and taking full advantage of Katherine’s weekly private sessions the community provides for them.  Mahon was inspired to provide a service to seniors after some special moments with her Grandmother just before she passed. Katherine had completed an oil painting of her Grandmothers house and in her final moments that painting created more joy than Katherine could have imagined. She knew then, that if a 2D painting could have such an impression, that something as immersive as virtual reality could impact others in a positive way.
