It can be difficult to understand what it is like for a person who suffers from a memory disorder. To help better understand what your loved one is experiencing, the Alzheimer and Parkinson Association offers Dementia Live® .
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.
The Alzheimer and Parkinson Association offers the Dementia Live® experience FREE to caregivers, individuals and employees of organizations in the community who interact with those who have memory disorders.
