Assisted living and skilled nursing residents at Cambridge Enhanced Senior Living and Cambridge Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center teamed up with local students for an afternoon of fun and community building during a virtual reality Back-to-School Trivia Tournament recently held at the Moorestown continuum-of-care campus. The Cambridge teams competed against dozens of others within the Mid-Atlantic region.   

 The friendly tournament was made possible through a partnership of Marquis Health Consulting Services, Cambridge’s administrative and consulting services provider, and immersive technology provider Rendever, which facilitated the interactive game-show environment in real time.   

 For the trivia game, Cambridge residents teamed up in person with local students to compete virtually against other intergenerational pairs at more than 30 Marquis client nursing centers and assisted living communities. The participants donned virtual reality headsets, answering four rounds of questions. Topics ranged from school-style subjects, including English, to popular culture spanning the 1930s to present day.  

Rendever is redefining the future of care, empowering the aging process to be more fun, more dynamic and more socially rich. Marquis-supported centers utilize Rendever’s state-of-the-art technology to support a range of life enrichment activities, including exercise classes, virtual world tours and more. Boston-based Rendever recently expanded its RendeverLive platform to provide full-time live, interactive programming for senior living communities and seniors aging at home.
