Gifford Dementia Experience

Recurring event see all

December 21 at 1:30 pm 3:30 pm

Dementia Live® Is a high impact, dementia simulation experience that immerses participants into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change.  Caregivers, professionals and individuals will better understand the hardships and confusion that occurs for a person with dementia. This method helps build sensitivity and provides another prospective for those who care for a loved one with dementia. It also discusses the different ways we can adjust the way we communicate with those diagnosed with dementia and how to achieve the best outcome when communicating with them.

We offer this program every 3rd Thursday of the month from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Gifford Community Center. If interested, call to schedule an appointment today at 772-563-0505.
