What is A Walk Through Dementia?
A Walk Through Dementia is a virtual reality app for Android smartphones which allows you to look at everyday life through a new lens. The experience, which can also be viewed via the app or on YouTube, uses a combination of computer generated environments and 360 degree video sequences to illustrate in powerful detail how even the most everyday task of making a cup of tea can become a challenge for someone with dementia.
This app was developed by Alzheimer’s Research UK, guided by people living with different forms of dementia. They were all keen to help you understand what everyday life can be like for them.
