Virtual technology assists Dementia training

Our nursing staff received a greater understanding of residents living with dementia thanks to a recent virtual reality interactive experience. They recently completed a workshop provided by Dementia Australia which allowed staff to see the world through the eyes of a person living with dementia utilising high quality virtual reality technology. Using the headsets, staff could view what it may feel like to experience dementia and ways to care for someone living with dementia. We are pleased to use this valuable information in our day-to-day work to improve and enhance the lives of our residents.
