BOSTON – Oct. 5, 2021 – Rendever, the leading provider of virtual reality (VR) for seniors that helps reduce the effects of social isolation, has been rolled out at two of Vantage Point Retirement Living’s communities spread across the Northeast, with more on the horizon as the company continues to open its slate of full-service retirement communities. Rendever’s VR platform is helping to change the lives of seniors affected by life-altering mental health conditions through Vantage Point’s New Directions program, an exclusive memory care program for those suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Rendever’s partnership brings a new technology solution to the communities and highlights the importance of an increased focus on memory care. Vantage Point’s New Directions is provided within The Compass Memory Care™ neighborhoods, which are specially designed to provide safe, secure environments that promote a sense of belonging and purpose. 

Alzheimer’s and dementia affect millions of Americans each year, and we proudly work everyday to develop tools that provide care to those suffering,” said Kyle Rand, Cofounder and CEO of Rendever. “While our platform was designed to decrease social isolation, our dedication to improving the overall mental and physical health of seniors allows us to partner with great organizations like Vantage Point to tackle other major health and wellness challenges that are frequently linked to isolation.”
 

Thanks to Rendever’s VR platform, multiple Vantage Point residents enrolled in the New Directions program have experienced breakthroughs.

“We had a resident who spoke only two or three words when the program started. Now, she can hold conversations and share past experiences,” said Rita Stevens, Cofounder and visionary behind New Directions for Vantage Point. “Seeing residents being able to effectively communicate after using Rendever’s immersive platform has been amazing. She virtually visited faraway countries and participated in fun activities, like riding elephants. Family members get emotional after seeing their loved ones’ personalities come back, and this is a true testament to our partnership with Rendever.”

On October 27, Vantage Point will be holding an event at Arcadia at Limerick Ponte in Limerick, Pennsylvania, to showcase how technology such as Rendever is changing Alzheimer’s care and how it can be especially useful during the approaching holiday season.
