Abstract

As virtual reality (VR) technology continuously evolves in this century, the number of such applications have undoubtedly increased significantly. Nevertheless, the VR market for the aged is still in a blue ocean. The Hong Kong population is aging more quickly than ever before. This puts a huge stress to the healthcare systems in Hong Kong. In this chapter, the authors describe the updated VR technologies and their applications in a series of emerging healthcare services such as training and green burial for the aged. To this end, the chapter will provide management staff in homes for the aged, hospitals, healthcare service providers, and other health service professionals with the latest concepts and good practices in VR for the aged. The humanistic, holistic, and integrated care for the aged will be achieved in the future.
