The Much Too Young Virtual Reality App places the audience into the perspective of someone suffering with the symptoms of Alzheimer’s related dementia, through the stories and homes of the TVO feature documentary film Much Too Young.
Users experience the world of a person with Alzheimer’s through Virtual Reality technology, with an immediacy and realism that has never before been possible. With the help of medical experts and the families that care for these individuals we hope to provide new insight into the challenges and experiences of Alzheimer’s related dementia.
As a leading hospital in simulation and healthcare innovation worldwide, Baycrest hired Digital Generals to create two simulations and a mobile app for use in training and research regarding empathy in caregivers. By using virtual reality simulations as an educational tool, Baycrest hoped to increase empathy in those who provide care for people with dementia. The VR dementia simulations allowed formal and informal caregivers to live the experience of a person with dementia and literally see the world through their eyes. Their goal was to increase the quality of life and care for both caregivers and persons with dementia.
