Care home residents given a virtual glimpse of the future

Birch Green was given a glimpse of the future recently as our residents tried out virtual reality for the first time.


One of our staff members brought their virtual reality glasses into the home for residents to use as part of the special activity.


Residents spent time experiencing an underwater scene with plenty of colourful fish and plant life, and we’re hoping to make the activity a regular part of our lifestyle programme.


The residents were totally amazed with the experience, saying they really felt like they were in the underwater scene and having a lot of fun.


We’ve never been afraid to embrace new technology and the opportunities it brings, and we can see a real benefit from virtual reality, helping residents experience new environments or perhaps trigger memories from their childhood.
