Reminiscence Therapy (RT) provides an opportunity for people with dementia to talk about memories.
We investigated whether coupling RT and immersive technology is feasible and beneficial. Five large immersive displays “travelling through” pre-loaded Google Earth landmarks formed the 6-week group intervention. Results showed some decrease in scores on the Neuropsychiatric Inventory in the experimental but not the control condition. Engagement during sessions showed modest differences. RT combined with immersive technology in a small social setting is feasible and may modulate behaviour associated with dementia.
