BRICK TOWNSHIP, NJ, Aug 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — yieldthe leading virtual reality platform for seniors, partners with Marquis Health Advisory Services to improve the mental and physical health of seniors in the skilled nursing homes and senior residences on the East Coast of the United States. After seeing the impact of the Rendever VR platform firsthand, Marquis partnered with Rendever to extend the value by integrating RendeverFit™ and being the first to implement company-wide private RendeverLive™ sessions.
After a successful initial deployment last fall, Marquis is now the first to deploy Rendever’s full suite of products, including Rendever’s resident engagement platform, RendeverLive™and RendeverFit™. Now Marquis seniors can travel the world in the blink of an eye, stay active through interactive VR games and sports, and build quality relationships with other seniors and Marquis staff.
“Marquis has been an incredible partner from the beginning – whenever they hear there is an opportunity to improve the lives of their residents, they are the first to dive in. We started sharing that we were ready to host company-wide live sessions. and less than a week later, we had a session scheduled with all their communities and an Olympic guest,” said Kyle Rand, CEO and co-founder of Rendever. “It’s really impactful for a mission-driven company like ours. We’re committed to expanding our approach and building a range of platforms that enable true, holistic wellness. It’s amazing to see it come together and make such a meaningful impact so quickly.”
Ensuring the holistic health of seniors is extremely important, especially the quality of their social and community structure. Studies have shown that social isolation can be just as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Aging can be challenging to navigate, which is why Rendever and Marquis are on a mission to bring joy to seniors’ life experiences.
“It was an easy decision to include Rendever in our programs at Marquis. We found several ways to include the platforms outside of the activity calendar. For example, we recently used Rendever’s platforms to extend our virtual Summer Olympics for our seniors, with a session hosted by former Olympic athlete Andrew Weiss. Everyone enjoyed competitive cycling on RendeverFit™ and trivia on RendeverLive™. VR is driving the future of aging and it is exciting to be at the forefront of innovation and see its effects on our residents mentally and physically,” said Ricky Pena, Vice President of Life Enrichment & Therapeutic Activities at Marquis Health Consulting services.
