American Senior Communities is pleased to announce a new partnership with MyndVR, the leading provider of virtual reality solutions for older adults in the United States. ASC is proud to be the first, and currently the only Senior Living provider in our state to offer MyndVR’s virtual reality (VR) program to our residents. MyndVR’s immersive VR platform allows seniors to engage in an array of fields including learning, travel, art, music and nature.
MyndVR debuted the innovative technology recently at Allisonville Meadows Assisted Living in Fishers, Indiana, allowing residents to experience a variety of scenarios, including visiting foreign cities, interacting with animals, joining a Broadway musical on stage, and even sky diving.

While virtual reality is certainly entertaining, it has many applications for older adults and can be used to enhance various therapies.
