I’m super excited to share this story about Chuck Olsen and Visual bringing virtual reality to Cannon Falls memory care facilities…
More on the video from Visual
The city of Cannon Falls, Minnesota ordered #WellnessVR headsets for their Memory Care units in hope they’d arrive in time for the holidays. We got them setup and took a little road trip to give this story a happy ending. 🙂 Spending time on a Maui beach or feeding cows on a farm is just the thing to chase away the winter sads. They’re already using the headsets with family members and all are loving it. Thanks to the Blandin Foundation for providing the technology grant, and to Ann Treacy for inviting us to speak at the Blandin Broadband conference every year to connect with rural communities who can fund and benefit from innovative digital health technology like virtual reality.
VR is amazing to me and it seems like a fix for lots of mental health issues for people of all ages.
