Virtual Dementia Tour
Since 2001, the number of deaths in the UK from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease has risen by 60% in males, and doubled amongst females - killing more people than heart disease or cancer. Indeed, statistics show that one in three people who were born in the UK in 2015 are expected to die from dementia. With these statistics in mind, it is vital that the quality of training is improved to provide a focus on what dementia is like for the person with dementia, rather than just the caregiver.
The Virtual Dementia Tour - invented by world-renowned geriatric specialist, P.K. Beville - is medically and scientifically proven to be the closest dementia experience possible for a person with a healthy brain. By understanding dementia from the patient’s point of view, practices can be modified to reduce issues and improve the person’s quality of life.
Providing a scary, intimidating, confusing and vulnerable experience for the user, the Virtual Dementia Tour is a must-have training accessory for every care professional or family member who wants to understand dementia by walking in the shoes of a person with the disease.
The Virtual Dementia Tour will be available to experience at Dementia Care & Nursing Home 2018.
