VIRTUAL DEMENTIA TOUR©
November 28, 2017 - 9:00 - 12:00pm
Reservations Required (Visit Registration Site)
Developed by P.K. Beville, PhD, and Second Wind Dreams. Conducted by Alzheimer's Tennessee.
How can we be empathetic to something we have not experienced ourselves? The perspective of the population living with dementia is one we cannot know. Yet decisions are made for these people without understanding what they are coping with.
The Virtual Dementia Tour was designed to simulate the effects of dementia, as well as other physical impairments we face during the process of aging.
Each participant will receive an individualized experience. Due to this customization, appointment times must be made.
