To support the well-being of people impacted by dementia and their caregivers, we’ve built a playful 3D world called Deva™

The world’s first dementia-friendly interactive 3D world.

Co-designed with memory care residents, research-led.

Deva World embeds evidence-based engagement stimuli for meaningful play 

Tapping on objects brings them to life.

Players share, express, have fun and are well-in-the-moment.

Grounded in science

Deva World was built from the ground up with a residential community receiving full-time memory care, informed by dementia therapy best practices.

The caregiver/player relationship is integrated at the design level. This joint experience is key to players’ improved mood and sense of wellbeing.

The project is the brainchild of Australian media personality-turned social-scientist, Mandy Salomon PhD, who, while researching online virtual communities at Melbourne’s Swinburne University, observed that people can be more themselves in a virtual world than they can in the actual world.
