  • We are excited to host an opportunity to experience the "Virtual Dementia Tour" on Tuesday, July 19, 2016.  The Virtual Dementia Tour is an individual experience through simulated dementia created for families, organizations, and companies seeking to better understand the physical and mental challenges of those with dementia.  After experiencing this sensory training, you will have a greater understanding of the realities of what living with dementia is like.  This unique, interactive program has been shown to improve communication and care.  Learning to create a positive environment for those with dementia can only come from attempting to walk in their shoes.  The VDT is based on research conducted by P.K. Beville, M.S., a specialist in geriatrics.  To see the VDT in action, view the ABC Nightline video from 2010.

    Participants MUST register before July 19 for a 30-minute time slot between 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  Care for your loved one will be available. Please specify that you will need care when you sign up. Call the Alzheimer's Aid Society at 916-483-2002 to register.
