About Deva: a dementia-friendly world
Download Deva World™ and enter a failure-free interactive, playful world where activities of daily living - past, present and imagined - brings engagement and builds connections.
Deva is helpful in any care setting. Players (people diagnosed with dementia) sit with their supporter (a family member, a professional caregiver, a friend or volunteer) and work their way through a calming and gentle world.
Deva is scientifically developed and is founded on dementia care best practices like reminiscence and music, garden and pet therapy. As a person’s dementia progresses, independence is lost, confidence is eroded, and the world shrinks. In Deva, players make choices, explore and collaborate - the fundamental acts that help us to express who we are.
Deva World was built from the ground up with a residential community receiving full-time memory care. The caregiver/player relationship is integrated at the design level. This joint experience is key to players’ improved mood and sense of well-being.
Our rigorous development and evaluation methodology makes us leaders in our field, and has earned us attention from experts in aging, dementia and digital engagement all over the world; you’ll feel the difference. As a caregiver, you will notice your player’s sense of calm, joy and amusement as they navigate through Deva World. At the end of the session, you can log notes and make these available to others. Check-in with your own feelings - you might be calmer, too.
We are used and loved by caregivers of all ages, in homes and care homes all over the world. To play Deva, all you need is an internet connection, a tablet device, and some time set aside for fun.
