Virtual reality tool improves carers' understanding of dementia
Publication date: 18 June 2019
A new virtual reality (VR) tool has been launched which aims to improve carers' understanding of the symptoms and challenges of dementia.
Alzheimer’s Research UK has joined forces with Bournemouth University to develop the training resource, which aims to help carers develop stronger relationships with people with the condition.
Dubbed The Lived Experience of Dementia, it aims to enhance empathy and increase understanding of lesser-know symptoms by enabling healthcare professionals to experience them first hand through VR.
