In a recent study in the UK, virtual reality immersive experiences have been proven to reduce instances of depression. This is significant because through virtual reality travel, each participant is made to feel as if they have transcended their current surroundings and are instantly transported to the destination of their choice.
Virtual Reality Tourism for residents can be used to in sales and marketing initiatives. Retirement homes can include this in brochures, website, social media and general promotional materials.
We support seniors care faculties in their unique challenges in an increasingly competitive market, introducing virtual reality tourism demonstrates a commitment to staying on the cutting edge of technology while providing exciting and interesting programming for residents. No other virtual reality company has focused their technology and content on meeting the needs of their target audiences.
Hospitals and Long Term Care Facilities
Our aim is to improve quality of life (QoL) through a customized program that will allow all residents to participate. Regardless of their level of mobility residents can feel “cooped up” or isolated from the outside world. Owlflix Media’s Virtual Reality tourism can help reestablish or create new connections to exotic and interesting places.

"...On behalf of the residents and staff of Lakeshore Place Retirement Residence, thank you Owlflix team! Your virtual reality presentation was a real eye opener for all who participated. Seeing residents watch each other react to the experience brought a smile across everyone’s face who witnessed it and curiosity peaked. Listening to residents talk about their experience and then relate to other experiences opened up conversations that continued on for hours. They are now looking forward to exploring more of the wonderful virtual reality videos that you presented. Thank you for that!"
