You’ve heard us talk about Embodied Labs before and we wanted to share why we love this technology so much! Embodied Labs is an in-office virtual reality experience of simulations that we’re now offering to help build a further understanding, awareness, and empathy for the clients we all support and serve.
This innovative and cutting edge technology includes different training modules, which we invite everyone to experience, extensively covering what it’s like to be living with the following disease states throughout their progression.
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease
- Macular Degeneration and High Frequency Hearing Loss
You can also experience three additional modules, which are not disease states, but rather situations that older adults typically encounter in the following scenarios:
- End of Life Conversations
- Trans Health and LGBT Aging
- Combating Social Isolation
Through each virtual reality experience, those in the experience can embody the perspectives and conditions of other people, gaining an understanding that you can’t receive from traditional training tools. This is tremendously instrumental to the work we do and compassionate care we provide.
We’ve loved having this a part of our ongoing SHS caregiver training efforts, but are also thrilled to welcome any client families and community partners to also visit our office to experience Embodied Labs – this is open to all!
