About this Speaker

Simon Jones is the Digital Communities Wales Advisor for North Wales. Through his work with hospitals and care homes, Simon Jones has shown how Virtual Reality (VR) headsets can help people with dementia. Last year, Simon pulled together a partnership of organisations including BBC Wales, the National Museums of Wales, Alzheimer’s Society Wales and medical experts to produce new VR material suitable for Welsh speakers. These pilot videos were then tested by the members of Grwp Dementia Bontnewydd. Members of the group also tried out the VR headsets to get the full experience. The feedback means that even more effective material can be created in the future.
