What Adventure Have You Chosen Today?

  • LISVH Launches Virtual Reality

The LI State Veterans Home is launching a new and innovative program to enable the veterans at the facility to go beyond the walls of the nursing home. Whether you are exploring the Ganges River on a 360 degree view guided tour, experiencing flight from a fighter jet off the deck of the USS Eisenhower, snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef or re-visiting your honeymoon destination in Maui, VR makes the veteran’s experience possible.

Donning specialized headsets, Virtual Reality (VR) will enable veterans to experience a whole new world of possibilities as it relates to travel, entertainment, education and other unique encounters that they would not be able to achieve due to physical limitations.

The goal of the program is to provide an immersive and meaningful experience for aging veterans living in the State Veterans Home. Led by Certified Recreation Therapists, Virtual Reality will be offered to residents of varying cognitive abilities with a focus on promoting adventure and education while providing a fulfilling and interactive experience. The use of a Virtual Reality program will benefit veterans suffering from PTSD, depression, dementia and other diseases by encouraging conversation, creating excitement, and increasing the potential for happiness, wellness, stimulation, and social involvement.
