Virotea VR is a service specially designed for the needs found within elderly care and LSS (The Swedish Act concerning Support and Service for Persons with Certain Functional Impairments).
Digitalization and Virtual Reality for elderly care
In pace with the elderly getting more and more comfortable with computers and electronics, there’s clear incentives that VR will be in a higher demand for the elderly cares of the future.
We can already observe a trend where elderly care centres are starting to offer Virtual Reality tools in order to accommodate the elderly’s needs of meaningful activities and experiences – while at the same time VR is perceived to be an efficient way to combat depression, loneliness and anxiety.
Why choose Virotea?
Virotea has to date already helped a few elderly care centres to handle the challenges they stand before. Virotea offers meaningful activities even to those who are restricted to their beds.
80-90% of the elderly who’ve tried VR tell us that their experience brings back positive memories. Furthermore our studies include several positive effects that includes the caretaker as well.
Digitalization and Virtual Reality for LSS
The LSS-branch has historically had a hard time to digitalize while the rest of society has leapt ahead – despite that the LSS-branch is in obvious need of new tools to make sure that their users needs are being fulfilled. Just like with elderly care there are certain demands on the LSS-branch to make sure their users are being included in meaningful activities and experiences. VR can help to minimize the limitation that physical immobility brings.
How can Virotea help users within LSS?
Virotea can help to contribute to meaningful and interesting activities for users that of different reasons are immobile. As a response to counteract isolation, anxiety and depression, Virotea offers a large variation of experiences tailored to the individual’s interests, needs and desires.
