Hospice care facility ensures residents live Epic lives by adopting technology, allowing seniors to explore the world via virtual reality
BOSTON – February 3, 2022 – Rendever, the leading virtual reality (VR) platform for seniors, today announces its launch in Epic Care Health hospice and palliative care in South Carolina. The VR technology will be used to expand the center’s capabilities to redefine hospice care by providing a connection to the outside world.
Rendever's platform allows groups of older adults in hospice centers and senior living communities worldwide to virtually leave the four walls of their living space to check off bucket list items and engage with the world in ways they never thought possible. Residents and patients are also encouraged to revisit significant places from their life journey and share stories from their past. Through the creation of these shared experiences, residents and their families can connect naturally with one another, allowing caregivers to focus on the enriching and enlightening side of the relationships.
“At Epic Care, we believe that quality living is the key part of our care. This starts from our compassionate team of individuals providing quality care and holistic therapies unique to South Carolina, to providing patients with technologies that allow them to explore and enjoy life. When you witness a patient’s expression when they are virtually placed on a beach they used to surf in their youth, you know that hospice care can be so much more. Rendever has opened the door to how we can transform hospice as we know it into Epic Living,” said Michelle Stone-Smith, COO at Epic Care Health. “This partnership will extend that reach, allowing residents to check off important bucket list items through virtual reality.”
“This technology is uniquely positioned to help those with limited life achieve whatever is left on their list of life-long goals while also promoting connection through the creation of shared experiences,” says Kyle Rand, Cofounder and CEO of Rendever. “Because many of these residents face travel limitations, virtual reality allows them to break those barriers down, opening them up to a whole new set of unique experiences.” Rendever offers an expansive library of experiences, updated weekly, along with a suite of growing community-building features and customization options. Family members can also get involved by creating and uploading their own experiences to the platform for their loved one to enjoy.
