Could a simulator help people to understand this debilitating, and often stigmatised condition?

The Virtual Dementia Tour

The Virtual Dementia Tour was invented 20 years ago in America by world renowned professional PK Beville who owns the non-profit company Second Wind Dreams owners of the VDT.  The Virtual Dementia Tour is medically and scientifically proven to be the closest that we can give a person with a healthy brain an experience of what dementia might be like.  By understanding dementia from the person's point of view we can change practice, reduce issues and improve their lives.

Scary, Intimidating, Confusing and a feeling of vulnerability the Virtual Dementia Tour is a 'must have' training for every care professional or family member that wants to understand dementia by walking in the shoes of a person with the disease.

"A very interesting way to change perception of how people living with dementia experience life.

Even the spikes in the shoes brought my attention to other factors than just mental issue"

This course was very useful as I work day to day with patients with dementia. It has given me more understanding what the patient feels.

I will give more time to the person and try to understand and how or what the person is feeling.
