The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

2. A Virtual Reality tool allows people to experience the struggles of coping with Alzheimer’s. The 3-minute video gets you to step into the world of “Harry,” a 76-year-old retired veterinarian and widower living with mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease, which makes even the simple task of brushing your teeth a challenge. Harry suffers from hallucinations, mistakes toothpaste for another medication, forgets to shut off the sink and is constantly confused about what time it is. The VR headset is, in fact, a very adept tool in providing the sense of disconnect and sensory impairment that a person living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia experiences, said Christy Littlefield, an education program specialist and social worker with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s Manhattan office. “The video is based on the common symptoms we see in our work every day,” Littlefield explains. – NY DAILY NEWS
