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.
According to Second Wind Dreams, the Virtual Dementia Tour is a scientifically-proven method that builds sensitivity and awareness in individuals caring for those with dementia by temporarily altering participants’ physical and sensory abilities.
Take a look at Walsh’s experience in the video below:
