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. To elevate person-centered care practices, care providers must first gain an understanding of what dementia is and how the individual with dementia feels when challenged with cognitive and sensory changes. 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.
