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.
