#ThrowbackThursday to a collaborative research initiative that is still one of Crosswater’s proudest achievements, The Albert Project.

It is critical that we send love and support to elderly communities in long term care. They are our parents, our grandparents, relatives, and friends that gave us so much over the years. Now it’s time for us to give back.

Crosswater’s VR/360 therapy has aimed to improve the quality of life for residents in long term care by using the immersive engagement achieved with Virtual Reality, coupled with the emotive power of music therapy.

In collaboration with Primacare Living Solutions, Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation, and Western University, The Albert Project research study sought to determine whether immersive experiences can calm the agitated and elevate the depressed dementia residents – ultimately providing comfort to them, their families, and their caregivers as they confront the deterioration associated with dementia and Alzheimers.

Crosswater produced this short documentary series to chronicle different aspects of the project. Click the link to hear directly from the researchers, caregivers, families, and more!
