Virtual home app to help people with dementia


A new Australian app uses 3D simulations of a home environment to help people living with dementia.

Created by Alzheimer’s Australia Vic and launched on Wednesday, the Dementia-Friendly Home app allows carers to better understand some of the visual and spatial challenges people with dementia — a collection of symptoms caused by brain disorders that make daily life progressively difficult — may face as they move about their homes.

The organisation was looking at ways to showcase the dementia-friendly home, Alzheimer’s Australia Vic Business Development Manager Tanya Petrovich told Mashable Australia. If homes can be better adapted for those living with dementia they may be able to stay living in the community for longer.
