Experience what it’s really like to have dementia
Understand what’s going on in your brain during the Virtual Dementia Tour
Improve the lives of people living with dementia
The Virtual Dementia Tour & Training Experience is a ‘must do’ activity for everyone who wants to help people living with dementia to gain a better quality of life.
This includes those who work in any form of dementia care and those who are living with someone with dementia. Or if you simply want a better understanding of dementia and how it affects people’s daily lives.
ONLY CHANCE IN THE UK TO TAKE PART AS AN INDIVIDUAL
The full Virtual Dementia Tour & Training Experience is usually given in group sessions to Care Homes, NHS Trusts, Universities, Public Services etc – with over 200,000 people a year in the UK taking part.
Now, for the first time ever, you’ll be able to experience the Full Tour and subsequent Training session as an individual. Simply Book Your Place now at The Alzheimer’s Show on 25th and 26th March 2022.
The full Dementia Tour is an 8 minute immersive dementia experience where you get to feel what it’s like to live with dementia. (The FREE shorter version of the Tour, available at The Alzheimer’s Show on a first come first served basis, is based on a 3 minute experience).
The subsequent 75 minute comprehensive Training session gives you a full debrief of what was happening in your brain during the Tour.
This Training further equips you with a greater knowledge and understanding of how to make life better for people living with dementia. (Research by the University of Ulster shows that 97% of people taking part increase their knowledge and 95% change their subsequent behaviour, leading to significantly improved outcomes).
Training 2 CARE’s Managing Director, Glenn Knight comments “The VDT is the only method of helping staff and families to really understand the changes that we need to make to become a dementia interpreter. By understanding the issues faced by a person with dementia, we can unlock new ways to communicate, understand their behaviours, reduce frustration, anxiety and really improve their lives. Training 2 CARE are proud to have delivered this amazing training across the UK and will continue to increase knowledge by allowing you to walk in their shoes”.
