Residents are amazed by VR Headsets

‘Out of this world’ is the verdict!

If you thought that swimming with turtles was one of those things you only imagined you might get to be able to do, well you might be wrong. Some of our homes have been part of a trial with VR Care, who promote the use of virtual reality experiences in care home settings where the experience of swimming with turtles is very real indeed!

Whether being on safari with big game in Africa, having a tour of the space station or a tour around Roman Chester, the experience is nothing but captivating for all who have tried it, in fact our residents have been nothing but amazed. Our team members have had a try as well, this is a fantastic innovation.

Those homes who have been involved with the pilot scheme are:

  • Manchester House
  • Millbrook
  • The Brunswick
  • Dovehaven Grove
  • Marsh House
  • Church View

With limitless subjects which can be explored, this is an advancement in the pursuit of an individuals hobbies and interests which previously have not been within a care environment. How things are changing!
