Virtual Dementia Tour


Description: PA Behavioral Health and Aging Coalition will be offering The Virtual Dementia Tour, a scientifically proven method that builds sensitivity and awareness in individuals caring for those with dementia by temporarily altering participants’ physical and sensory abilities. This evidenced-based program simulates changes associated with cognitive decline and offers hope by providing practical ways to create an environment that supports the disease and increases understanding.
The Virtual Dementia Tour was created by Atlanta-Based Second Wind Dreams, a national 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. All donations from tours are given to Second Wind Dreams to continue funding their elder dreams program.
