I recently came across this very exciting news regarding a new Aussie start-up that is utilising Virtual Reality in aged-care facilities.
The company is an aged care entertainment provider SilVR Adventures has launched a new national self-service model for residential care facilities.

Here's what the CEO of the company had to say about the product:
