Here’s what people are saying about the experience: 

“Very immersive experience. Gave a real feel for how individuals experience cognitive difficulties and executive functioning.”

“This training was the most impactful learning experience I’ve had in a longtime. I have a new understanding of my mother’s experiences.”

“Fabulous experience. Love how I can feel what it’s like so I can apply that experience to supporting others.”

In this high-impact Dementia Live experience, you will be immersed into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it’s like to live with a cognitive impairment and sensory change.  You will be empowered to build new bridges of communication.  Dementia Live is experiential learning that simulates cognitive and sensory impairment, giving participants a real-life simulation of what it must be like to live with dementia.  Through the hands-on learning experience participants gain greater awareness and understanding of the constant struggles affecting persons with dementia as they go about their daily lives. 

Target Audience:

This experience is for professionals working in the aging care systems, family members, caregivers, or individuals who wish to be more informed on the topic of Dementia.

Safety Precautions:
The Dementia Live Experience is not appropriate for individuals who appear to have a cognitive impairment, are intoxicated, have anxiety, poor balance, seizures, are pregnant, have impaired mobility that requires use of cane or walker, or are severely impaired with hearing or vision loss.
