Renaissance to Host Virtual Dementia Tour®
Renaissance will be hosting the Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT®) on September 30th, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. If you are a caregiver or have a loved one with dementia we invite you to join us on an emotional journey to experience the realities of life for persons living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. The tour takes approximately thirty-five minutes from start to finish. The tour is complimentary.
If you would like to have a better understanding of dementia and Alzheimer’s, please call Renaissance at (813) 386-1145 to set up a time to experience this sensory tour so that you will have a better understanding of the overwhelming effects of the aging process when combined with dementia. We are confident that this training will provide you with a greater sense of the daily struggles people with dementia feel.
The Virtual Dementia Tour is a scientifically proven method of building a greater understanding of dementia through the use of patented sensory tools and instruction. This method was created by award-winning, geriatric specialist and Founder of Second Wind Dreams, P.K. Beville. The tour builds sensitivity and awareness in individuals caring for those with dementia by temporarily altering participants’ physical and sensory abilities with props and circumstances to simulate changes associated with physical as well as cognitive impairments of Alzheimer’s disease. Proceeds from the sale of Virtual Dementia Tour support the work of Second Wind Dreams.
