VIRTUAL REALITY CARE TRAINING ... The home care company Care Indeed has launched Virtual Reality Dementia Training , a program aimed at teaching caregivers and community members skills needed to establish cooperative, caring relationships with people with dementia. The three-dimensional training environment provides many of the same benefits of training in a physical environment, but without the safety risks, the company said. "We are proud to be the first home care company to invest in a cutting-edge technology that teaches through practical simulation rather than theoretical concepts," Care Indeed CEO Dee Bustos said. "Our goal is to empower every caregiver with the knowledge and skills they need as their client's dementia progresses." The 3D training, powered by the virtual reality training company Strivr, is available to the general public as well as to Care Indeed clients. For more information, go to careindeed.com.
