Can V.R. help older people feel more connected to the world — and those who love them? Hosts Corey S. Powell and Kristen Meinzer dive into the new V.R. technology that’s helping seniors feel less isolated. Being lonely and isolated can worsen health conditions when you’re older, studies show, but innovations in virtual travel can provide a tangible sense of connection and love that can mitigate those stressors. Episode Guests: Isaac Lien, Co-Founder, Head of Innovation & Employee Experience at GrandPad, Laura Zettel-Watson, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and chair of the Aging Studies Program at California State University, Fullerton, and Kyle Rand, Co-Founder and CEO of Rendevor.
