VIRTUAL DEMENTIA TOUR®
Wednesday, December 6 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Senior Helpers – Polk County, FL along with Brookdale Winter Haven invite family and professional caregivers and the community at large to Experience the Virtual Dementia Tour®. Come for a 30-minute session between 1:30pm and 3:30pm.
Sponsored and facilitated by Senior Helpers, the Virtual Dementia Tour® is an individual experience through simulated dementia created for families, organizations and companies seeking to better understand the physical and mental challenges faced by those living with dementia.
After experiencing this sensory training, you will have a greater understanding of the realities of what living with dementia is like. This unique, interactive program has been shown to improve communication and care. Learning to create a positive environment for those with dementia can only come from attempting to walk in their shoes.
The Virtual Dementia Tour was created by Atlanta-based Second Wind Dreams, Inc.®, an international non-profit organization founded by Virtual Dementia Tour author, P.K. Beville, M.S. in 1997 to fulfill dreams for those living in elder care communities and to research ways to improve their quality of life.
