Welcome to Deva World™, a scientifically-developed program that has been co-designed with persons with cognitive challenges. Our dementia-friendly 3D-world platform delivers multiple engagement touchpoints for more productive visits, better care, and happier families.
Download Deva World (tablet only) to enjoy interactive, playful and engaging experiences of daily life, thus helping to reduce agitation and build connections.
A player (the participant) and a caregiver sit together and work their way around Deva World’s calming and gentle scenes.
First, download Deva World (free). Then join, and set up your player’s profile (you will receive a link, via email, to the Deva dashboard. You can then add favorite photos and images to personalize your player’s world.
You are now ready to start sessions with your player. As a caregiver, your role is to encourage your player to use the pad of their finger to tap on the objects they see. They’ll find music, animals, yummy things like chocolates and crunchy apples, and they will meet Julie (Elena in the Greek version), Deva’s virtual companion. Julie loves to help, but sometimes she’ll need your player’s help, too. Be attuned to your player’s responses and build on them by adding your own comments and observations on life inside Deva World.

Ratings and Reviews
Deva World: Making life better for people impacted by dementia.
WOW! I LOVE this app! My clients LOVE this app. Caregivers LOVE this app. Watching someone with dementia come to life with excitement and joy is beautiful. Deva World seems to awaken parts of the brain that were once lost. The stories I hear as we view photos of their lifetime, look at books, watch old movie clips are “simply” amazing. Exercising is no longer boring thanks to the variety of creative Spiro100 exercise classes. I am getting to know who my clients were pre-dementia resulting in relevant, personal conversations outside of Deva World.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
