Virtual reality simulation fosters empathy


“By using virtual reality simulations as an educational tool, we hope to increase empathy in those who provide care for people with dementia. The VR dementia simulations allow formal and informal caregivers to live the experience of a person with dementia and literally see the world through their eyes.  Our goal is to increase the quality of life and care for both caregivers and persons with dementia.
