How virtual reality is improving end-of-life care (incl. video)

In the UK, terminally ill patients are being transported from the hospice to other worlds.

Charity hospice Loros which provides hospice and home care to roughly 2,500 terminally ill individuals across Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland, UK, has launched a new project which uses virtual reality to enhance end-of-life care.

The idea is to help those who have limited mobility to experience life outside of treatment and give them the chance to go back to places in their past which hold fond memories, as well as experience new areas beyond the hospice and home.”
