Into D’mentia

Minase Consulting

Minase commissioned IJsfontein to create this experience from the first idea until the complete realization of the simulator.

Client: Minase consulting

Experience: visit www.intodmentia.nl or contact

In short

Into D’mentia helps to create understanding for people with dementia. The experience has been built in a mobile container. Audio-visual means, an interactive story and a clever layout provide informal caregivers and family members with a clear picture of the world as perceived by patients.

How it works

In a cosy open kitchen, users are immersed in the world of someone with dementia. Invisible techniques ensure a lifelike experience. A simple example is changing the controls on a radio. The user experiences that things are not working the way they are used to and get confused. The story is based on interviews with informal caregivers and people with dementia and was developed with the aid of scientists and research in this field.

Intake and subsequent discussion

An intake and subsequent discussion offer a context. Everyone recognizes something from the experience, but exactly what is personal. Some users even become frustrated or angry with their virtual informal caregivers. The subsequent discussion helps them to convert these emotions into constructive thoughts about their own attitude and role.

Result

In its first 3 months, Into D’mentia has been visited more than 1,100 times. The experience evokes emotions and encourages visitors to share stories. It is difficult to determine to what extent the experience actually supports the informal caregivers to continue their care for longer. If, however, the experience is an indication of the impact, it has had a very positive result.

Response to Into D’mentia

“Into D’mentia makes people experience dementia.” “I have experienced how unsafe, lonely, confused and sad you can be if you do not feel understood, heard and seen.”
