Into D'mentia allows carers to experience in a unique way what it means to have dementia. By means of a simulation in a surprisingly realistic environment they can experience the feelings and emotions of someone who has dementia.
In an everyday kitchen-diner a combination of virtual reality, interactive techniques, physical objects, sound effects and gaming technology creates a lifelike experience. This allows every visitor to experience a story based on real life. By an inner voice that comes out of a speaker vest, the visitor is taken into the life of a person with dementia. All the experiences that are part of the typical clinical picture - both cognitive and psychosocial - are included, such as confusion, anxiety, alienation, fear, aggression and insecurity.
