THROUGH THEIR EYES Virtual reality experience to understand dementia-friendly design
Designing with empathy
Designing a care home is an involved process that requires a real understanding of how the elderly experience their environment and how their experience differs from other people's.
That's why we partnered with the creators of VR-EP, a virtual reality tool endorsed by the leading experts in dementia-friendly design. VR-EP, or Virtual Reality-Empathy Platform, is designed to help professionals understand how declining eyesight and cognitive awareness impact perception of colour, contrast, and materials, by showing them the world as it would be perceived with various age-related conditions.
Try this immersive experience yourself and see what impact interior design can have on elderly people's lives.
