A Virtual Partnership Between Care Indeed and Strivr
Training for caregivers is important to us and how we train our qualified staff matters. That’s why Care Indeed has partnered with Strivr to offer virtual reality training.
Virtual Reality Dementia Training
As a leading home care provider, we are pleased to launch Virtual Reality Dementia Training, powered by Strivr, for caregivers and community members. The interactive training sessions are designed to empower caregivers with the knowledge and skills they need to map out the best possible dementia care while also providing caregivers with the skills needed to establish cooperative, caring relationships with dementia clients.
The 3-Dimensional Training environment provides many of the same benefits of training in a physical environment, but without the accompanying safety risks. Participants will be encouraged to explore at their own pace and learn from mistakes. Care Indeed believes that virtual reality training is more memorable than video or text-based learning materials and that the experience immerses learners into an environment that is safe, yet realistic.
The training provides what caregivers need to establish cooperative, caring relationships with dementia clients. “Our caregivers had expressed their desire for additional training for them to effectively map out the best possible dementia care, so we partnered with Strivr and created the VR Dementia Training,” said Dee Bustos, CEO of Care Indeed. “We are proud to be the first home care company to invest in a cutting-edge technology that teaches through practical simulation rather than theoretical concepts. Our goal is to empower every caregiver with the knowledge and skills they need as their client’s dementia progresses.”
Virtual Goals for Goal-Oriented Caregivers
A large majority of Care Indeed’s clients live with dementia, and research shows that dementia is on the rise with the potential to affect nearly 14 million people by 2050. As a result, Care Indeed, in partnership with Strivr, has created a virtual reality dementia training program that focuses on developing cooperative, caring relationships with dementia patients.
The primary goals of the VR Dementia Training are as follows:
- Begin Building Mental Habits
- Assess Active Listening Skills
- Expose the Outcome of Actions
- Engage the Learner
- Set Proper Expectations
Participants in Care Indeed’s cutting-edge VR dementia training are guided through the process of how to approach, communicate and respond to dementia patients. For example, the training emphasizes the need for offering dementia clients manageable choices to prevent them from becoming frustrated or overwhelmed with too many options. Caregivers are also taught how to model physical movements to simplify difficult physical tasks.
Strivr: Using Virtual Reality to Improve Performance
Strivr, a leading in the virtual reality training industry, offers specialized training courses to give people the tools to experience situations, challenges and real-life scenarios better. Virtual Reality helps participants prepare for new challenges and empowers them to perform at their best in a safe, yet realistic environment.
Strivr combines real-world experience and technology to make practice not only more effective, but also more enjoyable. With Strivr, the days of “have to” are replaced by “want to” and the results will speak for themselves.
Strivr was created by a world-renowned expert in virtual reality and a football coach looking to give his players an extra edge. Stanford University and its football team were the testing ground for the Strivr product. The result was a revolutionary way for individuals to prepare for important situations—and the world of training changed forever.
Care Indeed: A Commitment to Professional Development
Caregivers at Care Indeed are provided with multiple, innovative opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge. The Virtual Reality Dementia Training is just one example of how the company embraces professional development and continuing education.
The newly launched VR Dementia Training embodies the values of Care Indeed and our professionals realize that dementia develops in many forms, but one constant is that it affects three major areas of the brain: decision making, language skills and memory. The disease develops in three primary stages; however, each individual is affected in different ways. While caregivers can learn from traditional classroom and online training sessions, the most beneficial training method is to put themselves in real-life scenarios. Virtual Reality dementia training gives caregivers a chance to make mistakes in a safe space without affecting a client in real life.
