Who We Are
At Viva Vita, we are driven by a single goal: to improve mental wellness & quality of life for seniors in retirement. We bring the wonder of virtual reality (VR) to your retirement community in convenient & affordable subscription packages.
Through our turn-key virtual reality subscriptions that include beautiful virtual tours designed to engage and relax users, seniors and the communities that care for them can capture the numerous benefits that VR presents for older adults. Give your residents something to write home about with this unique amenity!
In 2017, Carleigh Berryman had an idea that would catalyze a change for the mental wellness of seniors. She noticed that her grandmother, Glenda, was becoming isolated in her retirement, that boredom was an every day struggle, and that experiences she once loved were becoming harder to enjoy. One day, Glenda shared with Carleigh that sometimes she felt she had "no reason to get out of the bed in the morning.” Carleigh wanted to see what she could do to help her Granny, her parents, and the millions of other older adults who struggle with late-life depression and anxiety around the world.
Thus, in 2019, Viva Vita was established to empower others to Live Life to the fullest with the help of virtual reality.
Today, Viva Vita is made up of a youthful team of innovators and dynamic team members passionate to break through the virtual reality industry for seniors.
At Viva Vita we are dedicated to upholding the highest ethical standards. We pledge to preserve integrity and transparency in our interactions with the communities which we serve.
We are committed to providing seniors with engaging experiences that spark their curiosity and allow them to Live Life! to the fullest each and every day.
Viva Vita pledges to treat everyone with the utmost respect. We do not tolerate discrimination on the basis of age, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and/or sexuality.
