EVRTalk helps family caregivers and their loved ones

More and more often, family members are called on to provide care for their loved ones - usually on short notice and with little or no training. This affects older adults, caregivers, family members, employers and the community as a whole.


EVRTalk is a revolutionary Virtual Reality (VR) experience designed to help family caregivers feel more comfortable with their new or changing role.
