This moving video from Tribemix explores how modern technology is helping people with dementia.
The footage shows three dementia patients using a virtual reality headset that surrounds them with peaceful settings like beaches and forests. The experience helps to instantly calm the patients and significantly improves their mood.
Feeling as if they are actually in the surroundings they’re being shown, the patients all remark on how pleasing the experience is and how happy it’s made them feel. They also report feeling calm and relaxed hours after using the virtual reality headsets.
