The Terraces of Boise is welcoming virtual reality into the senior living community, where The Library! at Bown Crossing bought a portable virtual reality for those senior citizens.
“So you will no longer be able to see the room but you will be able to see the virtual world,” explained Danielle Worthy, who is a library assistant. “It’s an experience that can allow you to conquer fears if that’s what you’re interested in or just marvel at the world again.”
Triggering happy memories is a big reason why Kyle Weathermon wanted the residents to be a part the virtual reality experience.
“We thought it would be a great and safe way for them to be a part of things they maybe enjoyed in times past,” said Weathermon, who works at The Terraces.
