How VR is Helping Combat Social Isolation at Senior Living Facilities

December 9, 2020

For too many residents of senior living communities, whether they're just moving in and getting adjusted or have been there for years, social isolation is the norm. Prolonged loneliness has a severe impact, not only on emotional wellness, but physical health, too. On the latest episode of The Big REthink, Rendever Cofounder and CEO Kyle Rand joins host Barry Ross to discuss the data on loneliness and health, his personal connection to it, and why he built a virtual reality (VR) company to help. He explains how shared VR experiences – from a trip to Barcelona to visiting a childhood home – not only let seniors explore the world with ease, but also pave the way for closer social bonds and, ultimately, better health for the long term.
