MyndVR has signed a partnership with Vi, Palo Alto’s premier Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), to deploy its state-of-the-art VR platform as an entertainment offering that combines cutting-edge technology and with immersive experiences for residents to enjoy.
The partnership will include independent living, assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing applications. Vi will receive customized headsets, care tablets and access to MyndVR’s content library powered by Littlstar, a global content network dedicated to virtual reality, 360-degree video and immersive experiences.
“Our commitment to improving the lives of our elders includes bringing a world of immersive VR content that allows these amazing people at Vi Living to connect with nature, travel, spirituality, music and arts, animals, etc,” said Chris Brickler, founder and CEO of MyndVR. “The content is limitless, and we are so excited to deploy the MyndVR network with such a progressive organization like Vi.”
MyndVR recently concluded a series of studies to better determine how virtual reality helps improve happiness and reduce social isolation in aging residents at long-term care facilities.
“At Vi, we are always seeking new and unique ways to integrate the latest technology that engages our residents,” said Vi president Randy Richardson. “MyndVR creates a fun and interactive experience that our residents can enjoy and also learn from with intellectually stimulating activities, such as discussions on current events, learning lectures, trivia contests and science-based memory training classes, as well as a variety of exercise programs and nutritional classes. We’re excited to see what MyndVR can do for our residents, allowing them to unlock old memories or embark on new adventures.”
Vi operates 10 luxury CCRCs from Florida to California. MyndVR specializes in providing virtual reality solutions to senior living communities, home health care agencies and directly to older adult consumers. For more, visit http://www.myndvr.com.
