This data is comprised of field notes and recorded interview data stemming from two design workshops carried out with people with dementia and their carers. With recreational VR applications coming to the market for dementia, we must consider how VR experiences for people with dementia can be sensitively designed to provide comfortable and enriching experiences. Working with seven participants from a local dementia care charity, this data indicates some of the opportunities and challenges inherent to the design and use of VR experiences with people with dementia and their carers.
