Purpose and goal

Virotea will launch a project together with Kurera Omsorg with the goal of stimulating and activating users (care takers) through virtual reality as a working method. The target group are care takers within the The Swedish Act concerning Support and Service for Persons with Certain Functional Impairments (LSS). This target group is often understimulated due to lack of meaningful activities. The goal is to make Virtual Reality a regular activity within LSS.

Expected results and effects

The expected outcome of the project is that a regular working method is established, which brings positive experiences for the care takers. Positive experience means that the target group are activated and stimulated through virtual reality. The long-term ambition is to contribute with a meaningful everyday life and a higher quality of life.

Planned approach and implementation

The goal is that Virotea and Kurera Omsorg conducts the activity three times per week, starting week 21. This is carried out together with the caretakes that are under the responsibility of Kurera omsorg. The staff will, together with the care takers, complete a survey and an interview after the activities.
