    Research Abstract

    Through Dementia Glasses, professional and lay caregivers can experience dementia themselves with virtual reality glasses that simulate the experiences of those with dementia. In addition to the virtual reality glasses, caregivers are offered further education about dementia through an e-learning program. A test version of Dementia Glasses will be tested by forty informal caregivers in the fall of 2016. Dementia Glasses are being developed in cooperation with the foundation Into D’mentia, Coolminds, and Ijsfontein. Funding has been provided by the Dutch Alzheimer Foundation and the PGGM Stimulation Foundation.
