Dementia Live

  
Erie County

October 9, 2017
 

Description: 
In this high-impact Dementia Live experience, you will be immersed into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it's like to live with a cognitive impairment and sensory change. You will be empowered to build new bridges of communication. To elevate person-centered care practices, care providers must first gain an understanding of what dementia is and how the individual with dementia feels when challenged with cognitive and sensory changes. Dementia Live is experiential learning that simulates cognitive and sensory impairment, giving participants a real-life simulation of what it must be like to live with dementia.
(Dementia Live was created by a North Central Texas based Company, Age-u-cate Training Institute, LLC to fulfill the need for innovative and education for caregivers and providers who work and care for those with dementia.)
  
Target Audience:
This session is for direct care staff, family caregivers, healthcare professionals, college students, or anyone working with individuals with dementia.
