What's it like to live with dementia ?

The Virtual Dementia Tour gives participants an opportunity to walk in the world of someone living with dementia.  It’s scary, isolating and confusing, but we are planning to put our CAREGivers through the experience to supplement our normal extensive dementia care training.

This innovative dementia training will help us to understand what our clients are going through every day.  After briefing, our CAREGivers will be subject to a mixture of sensory deprivation and sensory overload which will be disorientating and distressing – but only for a few minutes.  It will arm them with additional knowledge and understanding which will help to make them even better carers.
