Dementia can impair the senses, mobility and cognitiion. This can make it more difficult to understand and navigate the living environment. The virtual care home simulates how a well designed environment can improve the quality of life for people living with dementia.

A well designed environment can help people by:

  • keeping them safe from dangers such as falls
  • giving them the freedom and confidence to use their abilities to the fullest extent
  • aiding memory in day-to-day living, and
  • reinforcing personal identity.
