Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT)
- Become more aware about what it is like to have Dementia by taking this Virtual Dementia Tour.
ProTrainings partnering with Training2Care under licence with Second Wind Dreams to offer the Virtual Dementia Tour®.
Caring for another human being requires a special kind of person – someone who is empathetic, patient and kind. But how can a person who cares for the elderly be empathetic when they have never experienced old age in its fragile state? We make decisions for and about our elders as though we know what they are coping with. Lessening the chasm between us and our elderly gives us a greater chance of meeting their needs.
Learning to create a positive environment for those with Dementia can only come from attempting to walk in their shoes. The Virtual Dementia Tour® experience is a unique, interactive training experience that is proven to improve communication and care. Created by P.K. Beville, a specialist in Geriatrics, this valuable Dementia awareness training experience is designed to give individuals and organisations the ability to help identify with and understand people with Dementia’s behaviours and needs.
