For at least two decades, we’ve heard exciting promises about virtual reality. Until recently, VR technology was the exclusive domain of tech-savvy kids and a few startups making big predictions while offering little. In the past few years, virtual reality has come a long way from its humble roots. It’s not just about video games and immersive experiences anymore. A number of companies are already using virtual reality platforms to improve the lives of seniors.
The majority of seniors say they want to age in place, living in their homes as long as possible. For some, the prospect of moving to senior living is downright frightening, calling to mind fears of being “put away” in a nursing home or abandoned to a community of “old people” who do nothing all day.
Elder care comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s about tending to a loved one’s basic needs, such as cooking or cleaning. Healthy seniors might not need much material support. Instead, for this group, elder care is about supporting a loved one to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. The right active senior living community in Georgia can help you or your loved one lead an active and engaged retirement in a supportive setting, at a price you can afford.
