A virtual reality system permits people with mild to moderate dementia to participate in engaging life-sized interactive games and activities, with a view to improving their levels of physical activity, independence and confidence. The pilot project, operated by the local brain injury charity “Basic”, is called “Virtual Adventures” and has been funded by NHS Salford CCG.
