Travelling to Paris to visit the Eiffel Tower without leaving Greece. Our Greek member Apostoli has recently offered a fascinating experience to the guests of its nursing home “Karellios” in Athens, enabling them to travel to France thanks to the virtual reality technology.

This new activity was included in the various entertainment programmes run in cooperation with our member’s partner “Thallo”. In addition to the activities Thallo’s staff is regularly organising at the nursing house, the guests had the opportunity to discover the virtual reality and to go for a little walk into the “City of lights”.

Like other similar activities, this innovative virtual reality experience is based on the active participation of elderly people and intended to encourage their creativity through art, as well as to stimulate intense emotional reactions and to contribute to the enhancement of memory for people affected by dementia.
