Have you ever wondered what it is like to have Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Have you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of a person with the disease. A special program called The Virtual Dementia Tour developed by Second Wind Dreams does just that. It offers families a better understanding to these questions. Watch the ABC special of one son’s journey through the process.
The Virtual Dementia Tour touches the heart of family members caring for a loved one with Dementia by giving them a glimpse of what it is like to walk in their shoes. A family members senses are altered and then given a list of tasks to carry out. It quickly becomes very difficult for the individual to do much of anything. The Virtual Dementia Tour can cause anxiety just like the person with Dementia experiences. Learn what your loved one is going through. Learn how difficult it is to get through a day. Learn what it means to have patience and to never take another day for granted. Experience a Virtual Dementia Tour. At Family Caregivers Network we have two staff members trained to facilitate the Virtual Dementia Tour.
