Description

Let me share a my greatest moment yet. I was with a lady who I am going to refer to as Ms.Jones, who is 85 years old. We put the headset on the resident. We started "Google Earth" And we typed in the correct address the family had provided. Ms.Jones has Alzheimer’s & doesn’t speak very coherently these days. In seconds Ms.Jones was in the front yard of her home from 70 years ago. It took her almost no time at all to recognize her home. Spinning around & being able to see the same home she saw every day outside her home for years growing up. Ms.Jones said "see, I told you we’d be home before dark"." She was talking almost as clear as day. Like she was talking to her sibling.Mrs.Jones has been talking about stories from her childhood home ever since.This elicited tears from everyone around & a few that have heard the story.Lives Revived & Memories Survived

For the 1st decade of this charity existence was myself going into each & every event. Covid has influenced our programming in senior living homes.

we plan on gifting virtual reality to each senior living home, one at a time. This will create the opportunity for a computer & game to be utilized 24/7 instead of just during my weekly or monthly visits. Creating gathering places for the volunteers to focus.
