Caregivers Experience Immersive Training Through Virtual Reality

Senior1Care in Mishawaka, Indiana started using virtual reality as a part of their caregiver training in 2019.

In that time, they have evolved how they care for their patients and their families.

Caregivers can experience the world as someone with macular degeneration, an eye disease that impairs sight.

The decision to use virtual reality to supplement training was a way for caregivers to process and handle the emotions one experiences when caring for someone else.

"Getting the emotion out now doing the labs really helps so you can give an extended personal level of care when you’re with the patient or client instead of getting emotional with the client, because that just confuses them even more,” said Victoria Tellez, Caregiver.
