Experiences with Oroi: DomusVi El Serrallo

DomusVi El Serrallo works with virtual reality to reinforce memory and work on emotions

We share the experience of DomusVi El Serrallo, which is using virtual reality as a therapeutic tool, carrying out memory workshops and entertainment activities for the elderly through Oroi's virtual reality. "It is a way of reminding users of old moments they have spent in the company of their family. It can help us to take them back to a museum they visited in their youth, or to where they lived a few years ago. It is a way of working on memory and emotional aspects that are linked to the life experience of the users", says Roberto Castillo, sociocultural animator at the centre.
