Virtual Tour Shows What It’s Like Living With Dementia

DENVER (CBS4) – Most of us know someone with dementia. It’s a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. But do we really know what living with dementia is like? CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh recently took a virtual tour.

It was through a nonprofit called Second Wind Dreams and offered during the Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
