Virtual Dementia Tour – During a Virtual Dementia Tour, 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.
Dementia Friends Minnesota – Dementia Friends gives people an understanding of dementia and the small things you can do that make a difference. In this one-hour session you’ll learn what dementia is, what it’s like to live with the disease, and some tips for communicating with people who have dementia.
