Alzheimer’s Australia Vic
In September 2014 Lifeview teamed with AAV to trial and pilot The Virtual Forest - a sensory therapy application designed to improve the quality of life of people living with dementia through the use of video game technology.
Through this partnership not only did Lifeview assist AAV in the valuable work they do in the area of dementia research and support but it also brought to residents day changing technology, and gave our staff a better understanding of dementia.
Lifeview’s philosophy is for residents to be able to live their lives to the fullest with the least dependency on psychotropic medications – The Virtual Forest has shown this is possible.
In addition to working with AAV on The Virtual Forest Lifeview’s staff have undergone specialist dementia training to support residents further.
The Virtual Forest is now live and available in all Lifeview homes.
