Build Understanding Among Family & Community Members
Seniors face unique physical and emotional situations that may be difficult for family and community members to understand. Immersive training with Embodied Labs can help bridge the gap between seniors and their loved ones.
Engage Family and Community in a Unique Way
In community and family outreach, increase engagement by offering an innovative opportunity for people to gain understanding of common senior conditions. Embodied Labs offers individuals, groups, and remote users an easy way to virtually experience the physical and emotional conditions faced by seniors.
Improve the Quality of Care given by Family and Community Members
Family members provide better care for seniors when they understand what it’s like to have conditions like Alzheimer’s, macular degeneration, and other common ailments. Embodied Labs experiences offer family members a chance to see the world through their loved one’s eyes, which builds empathy and understanding.
Training Experiences tailored to the needs of Family Caregivers
Wake Forest Memory Counseling Program
Outpatient Mental Health Provider
The Wake Forest Memory Counseling Program (MCP) in Winston-Salem, NC, uses VR training to engage more effectively with their clients and support groups. Serving both people living with dementia and their care partners, the MCP serves hundreds of families in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina. The four licensed, professional counselors who are part of the MCP have used Embodied Labs experiences, particularly The Beatriz Lab: Alzheimer’s Disease and The Dima Lab: Lewy Body Dementia & Parkinsonian symptoms, to conduct workshops open to their own clients and the wider community. They use Embodied Labs in both 1:1 and group modes to give people a new perspective on caregiving – the perspective that their loved one sees every day while living with dementia. Data has shown that engaging with Embodied Labs dementia-focused experiences improves communication with your loved one and their healthcare team, confidence in ability to provide quality care & support, increases understanding of dementia symptoms, helps you understand how to spend time meaningfully with your loved one.
This was a very emotional experience. I walked away with greater understanding of what and how my loved one is experiencing life. I wish everyone who has a loved one with this diagnosis could experience this to have more empathy of what they are going through.
