Virtual Dementia Tours
 


The Virtual Dementia Tour uses patented sensory tools and instruction based on research conducted by P.K. Beville, M.S., a specialist in geriatrics and the founder of Second Wind Dreams®. During a Virtual Dementia Tour experience, trained facilitators guide participants outfitted with patented devices that alter their senses while they try to complete common everyday tasks and exercises. The Tour enables caregivers to experience for themselves the physical and mental challenges those with dementia face, and use the experience to provide better person-centered care. West Alabama Area Agency on Agency has two licensed facilitators that conduct Virtual Dementia Tours to caregivers, community partners, professionals, and any other interested groups at no cost.
