We were trialling the impact of using Viirtual Reality with some of our residents today. We had seen some of the positive stories from other homes and were really keen for our residents to experience this form of therapy.

It proved very popular! Residents loved the experience and demonstrated great joy and emotion during various parts of the trial. Staff and even some social workers tried out this new technology which helped to give more people an understanding of how it can benefit residents.

Yvonne Manson, Dementia Consultant said: ‘By working collaboratively with residents, relatives and industry professionals we hope to improve the experience to be more personalised for the individual.’
