Dementia Dictionary

Have you seen the Dementia Dictionary? Understanding that people with dementia face challenges with communication, especially verbally, we also recognise that they start to communicate in a different way. This is typically through emotions, body language, behaviours, noises, and actions. These changes form something special. It becomes the 'Language of Dementia'. We have seen this happen in care homes and home settings across the country, even the world. The universal Language of Dementia needs to be translated in order to better care for people with dementia. In the world's first dementia dictionary, this is what our global network of dementia interpreters are doing. Search through the dictionary to see if an action or behaviour your loved one is displaying has been translated.

The Virtual Dementia Tour
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.

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.
