Seniors aren’t necessarily the first group that comes to mind when thinking of new technology adaptation but virtual reality has led the way in bridging gaps between seniors and new technology. As we age, mobility and memory become issues that are all too common. With the use of virtual reality, directors and managers of retirement homes, senior living facilities and assisted care facilities can bring new exciting experiences to life for their residents. In the virtual world, seniors can be transported to exotic places, memorable places from their past, concerts and more!
Virtual reality has already proven to be more than just a trip to other worlds for seniors, however. Research is already starting to show that virtual reality can help in the diagnosis diseases like of early onset dementia, as well as the treatment of people with these types of diseases. Other early research is showing that virtual reality can be a cognitive training tool in these types of experiences, making training more fun and engaging.
Karyl Smith, Community Relations Director at American House Riverview, had this to say about the virtual reality experience they provided to their residents, “the virtual reality event was a fabulous experience for American House Residents, integrating the use of technology and allowing our residents to enjoy once in a lifetime opportunities. Many of the participants were excited and animated in explaining what they saw and heard while wearing the headsets, and have requested a repeat of the event so they can explore some of the other experiences VirtualRealityRental.co have to offer.”
Robert Goldstein, CEO of Menorah Manor, also commented on the experiences virtual reality was able to bring his residents and adult day care clients, “It was exciting to bring these wonderful, exhilarating experiences to our seniors with the help of virtual reality.”
About the VirtualRealityRental.co Senior Program
Our VR Program for seniors is designed to bring a virtual reality technology solution to a group that normally does not have access to this type of equipment. We will work with all skilled day cares, nursing centers, retirement communities and assisted living facilities nationwide. By providing short term rentals of our VR equipment, we are able to create customizable rental plans that will fit into any activity budget.
The team of VR experts will work with you to customize virtual reality experiences that best fit your residents. Have a retired scuba diver in your midst? We’ve got underwater experiences. Retired Navy? How does flying with the Blue Angels sound? Our VR experiences and equipment can be used in nearly any situation, even facilities designated for memory care. We’ve seen first hand how these can experiences can evoke old memories, inspire new ones and deliver smiles.
Don’t be worried about physical mobility either. Seniors can participate in ALL of our experiences from a seated position. We’ve already worked with homes all across the nation to create activities like: VR Day, VR Week and provided VR equipment for use on daily resident walk throughs. Let us help you bring this new and exciting technology to your facility today.
